Book your appointment online today (£50 deposit required) to have your area(s) of concern assessed and your suitability for this treatment confirmed.
Steroid injections are used to resolve keloid and hypertrophic scars, as well as certain cystic acne pustules and papules. Following an all-important initial consultation, the scar(s) are first thoroughly sterilised before being treated by injecting steroid directly into the area. Steroids have the ability to thin out and flatten tissues in our bodies, as well as making them lighter in colour. This can cause some momentary pain and stinging during the injection, and the scar(s) treated may feel a little tender, swell or have a burning sensation afterwards. The treatment itself takes a few minutes to perform. A dry dressing is applied after the injections to prevent any bleeding. Advice will be provided following your treatment.
A course of up to 8 injections may be required, scheduled at least four weeks apart, to attain the desired result. Each appointment lasts between 15 and 30 minutes
- £175 for initial consultation and 2 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart
- £95 for follow up treatments if required
