Steroid injections offer patients a highly effective, yet non-surgical solution to visible scarring that may be impacting appearance.
What Are Steroid Injections?
Steroid injections, also known as corticosteroid injections, are a type of medication that is injected directly into a specific area of the body to reduce inflammation and pain. They contain a synthetic version of cortisol, a hormone that is naturally produced by the adrenal gland and are commonly used to treat a variety of conditions like arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, and other inflammatory conditions.
When utilised for the treatment of topical scarring, however, steroid injections can be highly effective and offer patients a non-surgical solution to scarring that can sometimes adversely impact one’s sense of self-esteem.
