kenalog injections to scars or pimples

Has anyone received kenalog injections to their pimples/raised scars? Do you believe they have benefited you, and about how many rounds did you receive? I went back to my main derm, today and he told me my pimple is still active (after almost three months) and gave me a shot. He told me that in three days to two weeks I have a 90 percent chance it will be gone. Starting to really not trust doctors anymore. Wish I had more faith in them but sadly I don't. Could use some input regarding this issue.

Hey the kenalog injection failed. My dermatologist is cutting it out Dec 6. I am upset the injection failed and I have to resort to having him cut me but I have no other option. I am all for him cutting/burning/freezing/ hell he can even shoot it off, I just want it gone. I don't even care about the scar I am going to have. Scars give character, bumps just make me look like a clown.

My dermatologist did not cut out because he thought the shot worked good, the bump is still there, so i asked for another shot, and he gave it to me, though he did not want to. Hopefully will not get dent, though he warned I could.

You better be careful with that. Those shots can last over a year and people have lost fat and tissue; a permanent depression/dimple. Don't be in such a hurry.

They're the same thing imo.

Is kenalog the same thing as a cortisone shot?

Scars are not the same as dents from kenalog injections. Yes kenalog is the same as a cortisone shot, both steriods.

How do you think a dent from that is different than a scar? They seem to be the same to me. Do they look that different?

I had a cortisone injection once and it didn't work. No dent, but no results.

I go Kenalog shot, two of them didn't work for me either. Very frustrating.

I have small dent under my bump, from the injection. : ( he told me i might get dent but didnt't think it would be on my normal tissue, not my bump tissue. I will never win. I hate that I ruined my nose, by popping a pimple too early, the quilt consumes me daily. I will fix this somehow.

hey how did your bump go away? i had 2 shots in the same cyst and it looks like the second one did it for me. i never had any dents and i have had a ton of cortisone shots. i guess i am either lucky or my derm knows what she is doing. i hope that your bump is gone now.
