Kenalog hypopigmentaion and atrophy. Does this look permanent? (photo)

In August I received ILK 2.5mg/cc x 0.3 cc for a cyst. 1 week later the atrophy was treated with 2 saline injections 1 week apart. 5 months later the atrophy has been filled in with Restylane, but the hypopigmention & atrophy persists along the entire nasolabial fold. Will this resolve? What's my recourse?

Based on your photo, your atrophy after Kenakog injection appears to be improved.


In our experience, white discoloration after dilute triamcinolone acetonide injections may disappear. If you have a persistent indentation, you may be a candidate for a Silikon-1000 treatment: an off-label filler for permanent results.

I wish you well.
