Reported Results
Benefits:   I saw a moderate decrease of inflammation in some cystic acne lesions. In the case of mild acne that is not cystic, the risks outweigh the benefits if the injection is not done properly.
Side effects:   I developed a prominent indentation on my face at one injection site. This was caused by lipothrophy, or a shrinkage of the fat cells beneath my skin. This usually resolves within 2-4 weeks. Sometimes it never goes away completely. I have also been unusually irritable and anxious.
Comments:   A dermatological assistant injected what she assumed to be several adult acne cysts on my face with an unknown amount of Kenalog 10. About a week after one injection site developed an indentation the size of a pencil eraser. On a subsequent follow up visit the doctor told me that this would go away in two to four weeks. In two weeks, I have seen no improvement. I feel that the docor did not adequately explain the possible physical and emotional side effects of this very potent drug. She never said that it was a steroid.
