Scar-like marks after kenalog injections for cystic acne?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if it's a potential side effect to get scar like coloring after a kenalog injection on a cystic acne pimple? 

II used a new dermatologist because I was traveling and I seem to have discoloration, almost like a scar color, at the injection site 2 weeks after injection on my chest. 

I don't have any dents/divots/depressions, which I hear is the usual nasty side effect when injecting too much Kenalog, but I feel this new dermatologist used much more kenalog than my other dermatologist, who I've never had an issue before.

Could these spots have been caused by kenalog injection?

See attached picture for the two spots. Thanks!
