Acne can be a frustrating, painful, unsightly, and potentially scarring condition. Although many highly effective options exist to maintain clearance, what do you do when “the big one” comes right before a date, school/work presentation, family reunion, or your wedding day? Various creams or pills can be used for flares, but one of the most effective options is injection of a diluted cortisone directly into the acne cyst(s). Most people who have this safe and minimally painful procedure will experience rapid improvement in the tenderness, size, and redness over a period of 24-48 hours.
