What is an intralesional corticosteroid injection

Intralesional corticosteroid injection is used to treat numerous conditions. Within dermatology, the injections are used as a treatment for keloids, cystic acne, loss of pigmentation, some types of psoriasis, etc. The purpose is to reach a high concentration of the medication in the affected area and minimize its systemic absorption, which could have undesirable effects.

Many medications may be administered in the form of intralesional injections. Nonetheless, the derivates of triamcinolone and betamethasone have the broadest use within dermatology. The dose of the injection is dependant on the type and size of the lesion and the seriousness of the issue. The time interval of the administration is affected by the reaction following a previous dose. This kind of treatment is used separately or combined with other therapies.

Who is a suitable candidate for this procedure

A physician decides to perform intralesional treatment based on a careful assessment of the issue or illness. They assess the effect of the previous treatment using other methods or recommend a combination of intralesional injections with another therapy.

Před / Po

Before the procedure

The treatment is not demanding and does not require any special preparation. It is necessary to inform your physician about your condition and potential illnesses.

The procedure

The procedure is five to thirty minutes long and almost painless. A physician cleans and disinfects the area and subsequently injects the medication.

After the procedure

It is possible to return to everyday activities immediately. A physician may recommend repeating the treatment according to the seriousness of the issue and the effect visible after the first injection.

Important information

Excess tissue growth is blocked after the corticosteroid injection, and the tissue contracts. In some cases, a scar or keloid is minimized, whereas in other cases, the physician recommends combining other types of treatment, such as treatments using the Ultracel device or Cellec V system.

The result is amazing, and improvement has been visible even after the first session. I have had three sessions, my neck and chin are firmer, and the neck is without wrinkles after the third and final session. Julie V.
