Acne Cyst Injections Provided by a Direct Primary Care Physician in Orlando, FL

Acne Cyst Injections Orlando FLAcne cyst injections can rapidly reduce inflammation in the skin. Usually reserved as a last- resort treatment for very severe acne, a glucocorticoid steroid injection can be used to treat a highly inflamed, red acne nodule that is worse than the patient’s usual acne and shows no sign of improving, or to quickly resolve a pimple in an “emergency” situation, such as an imminent wedding.

A doctor might also recommend an acne cyst injection for a pimple that looks like it could leave a scar if it continues to worsen. Additionally, a patient who is prone to painful, cystic acne may benefit from receiving a glucocorticoid steroid injection at the first sign of an oncoming cyst. An injection into an early pimple can prevent it from progressing into a large pustule and thus reduce the risk of scarring.

What Do Acne Cyst Injections Involve?

After cleaning the treatment area with rubbing alcohol, a doctor delivers the injection directly to the acne cyst in one quick stick. Many patients notice a significant improvement within 24 to 48 hours. To help prevent further breakouts, the doctor may suggest some skin-care routine adjustments.

While this relatively short procedure can quickly and easily improve acne, there are a few caveats. First, acne cyst injections are not designed to be a skin-care staple. Instead, this treatment is intended to be used occasionally to address painful lesions that could potentially cause scarring or to provide an aesthetic benefit for a special occasion.

Second, the amount of steroid medication that can be injected into the skin is limited. If too much is injected, it could be absorbed into the bloodstream and lead to systemic effects. Furthermore, if too much cortisone is injected into a single spot, or if too high a concentration of medication is used, a pimple could shrink too much and create a depression in the skin. Although this effect will be temporary, it could potentially last for a few weeks.

“We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. ”

“There is no better care available than with Optimum Direct Care (ODC). We have been with Dr. Muzzi and Erin for several years now. The attention to detail, quick response and holistic approach to your health is unrivaled. They provide peace of mind for always knowing you can reach your doctor anytime. There is no waiting, no repeating who you are and your history over and over. No making multiple calls to the doctors office for requesting your prescription refills or holding your breath to be able to make an appointment for urgent care. We love the direct care model as we were part of another similar practice in the area before coming to Dr Muzzi. However they charged not only premium prices for monthly membership but in addition a top dollar price for every visit. With ODC it is just your monthly membership fee. Our family highly recommends Dr. Muzzi and ODC. They feel like our extended family. ”
