What is a Cortisone Shot? Why Your Pimple Needs It.

Many people have heard that there is a simple way to get rid of a pimple quickly, called a cortisone shot.  However, not everyone is familiar with what a cortisone shot actually is!  So, what is a cortisone shot?  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "A cortisone shot is a short treatment performed in a dermatologist's office.  A tiny, diluted steroid medication, similar to cortisone, is injected directly into the pimple.  This steroid medication is anti-inflammatory, so the result is the inflammation is decreased within 24-48 hours.  Since inflammation of the skin is one of the factors leading to the pimple in the first place, the result is that the pimple is flattened within 24-48 hours.  There is no down-time after a cortisone injection, the pimple simply flattens out." At the Clear Clinic, we leave same-day appointments available for our patients who need cortisone injections.  The tiny injection feels like a small pinch and there is no 'downtime' after the treatment.  Many patients stop by on their lunch hour, or on the way into the office.  You may apply makeup immediately after the cortisone injection appointment, so no need to head straight home after your visit. Visiting the Clear Clinic for a cortisone injection is the best way to get rid of a pimple quickly. Click here to learn more about cortisone shots and why your pimple needs it.
