What is Ingrown Hair Treatment with Cortisone Shots?

If you have ever suffered with an ingrown hair, you understand what a relief it is to find a solution.  Just one cortisone shot can easily bring down the inflammation that has kept the hair trapped below the skin.  

How does it work?

First, one of highly trained registered nurses will evaluate the area to be treated and make sure that what we are dealing with is actually an ingrown hair.  Then we will inject cortisone into the base of the cyst that has formed. The cortisone will bring down the swelling within 48 hours and the hair should fall out on its own with the aid of mild exfoliation.

What does the treatment feel like?

The treatment is quick and nearly painless, just a small prick of the needle and you are on your way.

Does it hurt?

There is very little discomfort.  The most uncomfortable part is usually the pressure within the cyst itself.

Is this treatment safe?

This is a very safe medical procedure, which is always performed by an experienced registered nurse.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime at all.  You are free to return to work, go to the gym or engage in any other activities, directly post treatment.

Can I get this treatment before a special event or travel?

You are absolutely able to receive this treatment prior to any travel or special engagements. Keep in mind your ingrown hair will NOT immediately be resolved post treatment however. 

Who should not get this treatment?

I you have an allergy to cortisone, this would not be recommended.

Are there any side effects?

Generally, there are no side effects to this treatments.  Occasionally, the area that has been injected may look a little indented after the swelling is relieved.  This usually returns to normal after a few weeks.  In rare instances, the indentation, while slight, may be permanent. If you turn out to be  allergic, the area treated may develop a rash or hives, and we would recommend seeing your physician.  

How many treatments will I need?

For the vast majority of clients, one treatment is all they need.  

When Should I get my next treatment?

Another treatment is needed only if another ingrown hair appears.
