Atrophy from kanolone injection. What can I do with the pitted area?

Indentation after steroid injection
Thank you for your question. From what you are describing, it sounds like you developed atrophy from the steroid injection, which looks like an indentation or a pit. The atrophy can reverse on its own, but it can take up to a year for the pit to resolve. I highly recommend you return to the dermatologist, who performed the injection, to evaluate the area and to discuss treatment options that best suit your needs. Take care and good luck.
