You may or may not have heard of cortisone shots being used to treat acne, but basically it works like magic. In a procedure we simply called “Acne Injection”, our doctors will inject a diluted corticosteroid directly into your zit. Within a few hours your pimple will start to go down. Within 24 hours it will all but disappear completely. The whole procedure takes about 15 seconds in all, you leave with a little Band-Aid on the injection site, and you wake up nearly 100 percent pimple-free in the morning, like magic! The shot worked like a dream!
