Acne cysts or nodules can be painful and embarrassing, often popping up at the most inopportune time. When you get one, you want it gone – fast! Terry Conrad, APRN, offers cortisone injections at her Cos Cob, CT practice, Naturallyou. These injections immediately begin to help relieve the pain and discomfort while reducing the cyst.
What Is the Cyst Injection Process?
First, the area is usually numbed, although there is little discomfort with this procedure except for the pain you are experiencing from the cyst. A cyst injection directly shoots a diluted corticosteroid into the cyst or nodule. Terry performs all injections and avoids using too much cortisone. The treatment takes only seconds, and within 24 hours, the size of the cyst is dramatically reduced.
At the first sign that a cyst is forming, call our office. We suggest those suffering from chronic cyst acne see a dermatologist for a long-term treatment plan that may include treatments that we perform, such as photodynamic therapy.
The next time random nodules or cysts pop up, call us so we can shrink it quickly.
Terry is a true professional and beyond amazing!! Her aesthetic approach is conservative and natural. Her artistry enhances your own natural beauty for a more soft and youthful “you.”
