Please can someone tell me their stories of cortisone atrophy. I have been getting shots for 9 years and never a problem. About 6 weeks ago i got a shot and now i have an indent. It looks maybee slightly better but i have also been doing microdermabrasion. Please share your experiences. My derm says it will go away. If anyone has experienced this how long did it take?

Stop with the microdermabrasions. They won't do jack. Many people report the indents from the cortisone will go away but it could take 6 months. Chill and don't jack with your skin.

Yes, I'd really appreciate hearing how long it usually takes for an atrophy to fill in. I just got a cyst injected on my chin at the beginning of September and I have a huge dent. Its very upsetting and I can't wait for it to go away :cry:

What's a micro/collagen facial?

There is a poster on here that had a indent from cortisone injection and she was really helped with saline injections. Search saline injection info. I actually think there was a study showing that saline injections can help indents as a result of cortisone. There is a doctor in Fullerton, CA that the poster went to, his name is Dr Sire. Good luck

Dont think the injection really caused the indent the cyst or big zit did.

As for microderms I like them and think doing them once every other week has greatly improved the look of my skin. I read in a scientific journal that a study found 20 microderms were needed before improvments were experienced in acne scar patients. The good news was that the improvments were seen throughout the treatments after the 20 initial ones.
