Acne is embarrassing when it breaks out, but when it turns cystic, it can become downright painful.
Hence, this calls for cystic acne removal.
Acne cysts are soft lumps under the skin that may be filled with fluid. Cystic acne can also appear in the form of nodules, which are harder lumps under the surface of the skin and may be even more painful than the soft cysts.
Cystic acne is generally inflamed and red and is difficult to cover up with make-up. Since it is more common in young males, make-up is often not an attractive option for “treatment.”
If you have this type of acne, you may be wondering: “How long does cystic acne last?”
Unfortunately, this type of acne can be chronic, and individual cysts can last a while.
It is very important not to pick at the cysts, as scars can develop.
The good news is that we can treat this type of acne with cyst injection. Using diluted cortisone, we can decrease the redness and inflammation of cystic acne within 24 hrs.
