Intra-lesional Injections for the Treatment of Cystic ACNE
If indeed acne presents with inflammatory lesions, we find it useful to treat them with intra-lesional injections of Kenalog. These are generally suggested weekly for 2 or 3 sessions if progress is noted. There is a maximum dose per treatment and overall, however, otherwise , adverse effects of dimpling or skin atrophy might result.Other treatments such as oral Accutane and laser therapy can also help to reduce inflammatory lesions caused by overproductive sebum.
