At Skin Works Medical Spa, we can quickly and easily eliminate the irritation of ingrown hair. A cortisone injection will decrease the inflammation that traps the hair under the skin and within 48 hours, allows the hair to fall out thereby eliminating the associated pain. No downtime, no surgery, and no scars!
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF A CORTISONE SHOT?
There are typically no side effects; however, there may be a slight indention once the swelling has decreased. This will usually return to normal within a few weeks. In rare cases, the indention may take a few months to go away. If you are allergic to Cortisone, the treatment area may develop hives or a rash. Our expert injectors know how to minimize any possible side effects.
