Schelly’s Aesthetics offers Celestone injections ($35) for clients with an ill-timed pimple (i.e. prior to a big event), or a large pimple that is re-occurring or doesn’t respond to other treatments.
Celestone is a mild steroid, which can make most pimples disappear in 6-20 hours. It is injected directly into the pimple to help reduce redness and swelling almost immediately. By reducing the swelling, the pimple is easier to cover up with makeup as well.
Though this procedure helps to resolve the inflammation problem almost instantly, there can be side effects, such as redness, itching, or a temporary whitening of the skin around the injection point. Occasionally, a small depression forms, which may persist, although often fills in eventually. For these reasons, this treatment is not recommended on a regular basis, but is best for use in special cases. For preventative care and everyday acne, we offer a wide variety of skin care products for every type of skin, including acne prone, as well as chemical peels, microdermabrasion and anti-aging and acne light therapy.
