Cortisone shot for acne over 40!

Recommended Posts

So I doubt I'll hear anything from this, but I guess I'm hoping for some reassurance but predicting the worst. I had a cortisone shot for a pimple, yup, atrophy has occurred, I don't like my chances of healing at 45, if anything I'm losing collagen.  Wondering if anyone around my age has had good healing consequences from a similar experience.  I'm dosing up on vitamins and it's been a month since the regrettable incident.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know you're not alone. I'm in my early 30s and have had atrophy from a cortisone injection I had a month ago. The atrophy appeared about 2.5 weeks ago and is pretty deep. I've had 2 saline injections because I've read that can speed healing, however, there has been no progress. It's not fun and has been consuming my thoughts and mood. Hows your atrophy looking now? Any improvement?
