WHAT TO EXPECT?
A small amount of cortisone solution will be injected using a tiny needle directly into the area of concern. Within 24 hours, the injected site should begin reducing in size. This procedure takes just a few minutes and causes a quick and significant reduction of inflammation, resulting in a much smaller and less noticeable pimple, ingrown hair, or keloid scar.
However, keloid scar may take longer to go down and may require more than one kenalog shot. Kenalog injection is given by injection into the muscle of the buttock or subcutaneously in the stomach.
