There are injections that you can get in your face. It is usually for cystic acne that takes forever to go away. This is a cortizone injection that they do. Sounds like it would hurt... Ive never done it before but my cousin has and it works pretty good in shrinking them.

There's also something derms do (or at least they used to do 12 yrs ago) called comedo extraction. It's basically a fancy way of saying they pop your zits. They use a special instrument and it really helps minimize scarring especially if you have deep nodular/cystic acne. I never had the injections so I can't offer an opinion on that.
