Everything You Need to Know Before Taking Acne Injection Treatments

For most people, uncontrolled acne is one of the most frustrating things to handle. While external treatments can be effective for most cases, there is a small exception that doesn’t. As a result, people are going after acne injections to treat their cystic acne problems. This article explains everything you need to know before taking acne injection treatments in Upscale Bali, which include the procedures, benefits, and side effects.

What is Cystic Acne?

In the field of dermatology, cystic acne is considered to be the most severe form of acne. In most cases, this type of acne occurs after the skin’s pores are clogged with dead skin cells and oil. Certain bacteria, such as the Propionibacterium acnes, are also often involved in cystic acne appearance.

Cystic acne usually appears like any other type of acne, such as pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, papules, and pustules. However, unlike the usual acne types, cystic acne requires certain procedures to treat.

Upscale Bali Cystic Acne Treatment Procedure

In Upscale Bali, cystic acne cases are usually treated by injecting a corticosteroid directly into the blemish to shrink the swollen wall of the cyst. The procedure is executed using a special needle that is barely larger than an acupuncture needle. The needle is designed in such a way to minimize the pain during the procedure.

The acne injection procedure is relatively quick and painless. Even in the severe cystic acne case, the injection will only cause soreness and mild pain.


Cortisone will effectively work on the average pimples and reduce the build-up of pus in the swollen pustules. Simply put, the shot will shrink the affected tissue on large cystic blemishes. In most cases, you will feel the effect of the shot over the next 24 hours after the procedure. The treated blemishes will soften and shrink until they become smaller and able to heal within a week.

As such, LV Skin’s acne injection treatments are suitable if you have a massive noticeable pimple that won’t heal for months. Our treatment is also appropriate if your blemish causes intolerable pain. Since the effect can be felt in a relatively short period after the procedure, our acne injection is suitable if you have an important event coming up, and you just developed an acne breakout.

Side Effects

Although it may sound like magic, cortisone injections still have several side effects. The most prominent side effect occurs when too much or a strong dilution of cortisone is used during the procedure. When this occurs, the skin around the injection site may experience atrophy, leaving behind a visible depression after the blemish has healed. While able to heal itself over time, this depression may also be permanent.
