Intralesional Steroid Injections
Intralesional steroid injections, also known as Kenalog injections, are a tried-and-true method for treating a wide range of skin conditions. At Happy Skin Pediatric Dermatology, our primary use of intralesional steroid injections is for the treatment of cystic acne and alopecia areata. However, intralesional steroid injections may also be used to treat keloid scars, or scars that are raised and bubble-like in texture. Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Dr. Samantha Casselman, and her team may recommend intralesional steroid injections in addition to other holistic treatment methods to enhance your child’s results.
If your child is nervous about receiving a shot or injection at the doctor’s office, don’t worry. Happy Skin Pediatric Dermatology is designed with your child’s comfort in mind. Our providers, including Dr. Casselman, are proud to offer gentle and compassionate care to your little ones through every step of their treatment process.
What is an Intralesional Steroid Injection?
An intralesional steroid injection is simply an injection of corticosteroids in the treatment area. These kenalog injections work to reduce inflammation in the treated areas, further reducing unwanted symptoms of cystic acne and alopecia areata. Intralesional steroid injections work hand-in-hand with other treatments to provide patients with their desired results, whether that be reduced acne breakouts or the growth of new hair on the head/body.
In addition to an intralesional injection treatment, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Dr. Casselman, and her team may recommend holistic methods to treat your child’s cystic acne, alopecia areata, or other condition. This integrative approach to dermatology combines holistic and natural treatment methods with evidence-based health care. This allows Samantha to treat your child’s condition as a whole, rather than just mask their unwanted symptoms for a period of time.
