check it out:


my derm injected cortisone into a cyst over a week ago, and for some reason i SWEAR it looks like there's an inverted little dimple in that spot now. there's hyperpigmentation, of course, but i think there skin has recessed there....has this happened on anyone?! why is it doing this?! will my skin level out back to normal?!??!?!?!?! :think:

(or should i just use retin-a on it every night.....aghhhhhhhh)

has it filled in by now? i am suffering from the same adverse effects of a cortisone shot...

oh don't worry it leveled out--but it took a little bit of time. i just put a LOT of tazorac and/or my retin-a cream (tretin-x). for a couple weeks it looked like it was never going to go away, but it just eventually did. put topicals on it to help it exfoliate, it sounds weird because the skin is sinking in, but it helps a lot! i don't know when i wrote that last post, but it's probably been a good 3 weeks since it's been filled in, if that helps. good luck :)
