i received a steroid injection to manage scarring of a rhinoplasty and was wandering how long it would take to see the effects of kenalog. Can it be in a few days or a few weeks? Thanks for your time!!
How Long Does It Take to See the Results of a Kenalog Injection?

Kenalog steroid scar injections
When injecting steroid for scar management the physician should be conservative. If you inject too much at a time or too frequently you can cause more problems than you started with such as indents and skin bleaching . This is particularly so in some areas like the nose. You need to wait 4 to 6 weeks between injections to avoid giving an injection before the previous one's effect has been fully realized. The only exception to this is keloids.
