filler

 

Hi there,

I received a Kenalog injection of Kenalog 40 into a cystic pimple between my eyebrows. Two weeks later I have a huge indented line in the area, will this be permanent? Please help. Anything I can do to speed healing along? 

 

Answer:

That is a very large dose of Kenalog for one area. The atrophy is very common with Kenalog injections, especially if it is injected superficially. The regrowth of any tissue will take 6 months on average. After 6 months, if a dent remains, then fillers will be required to repair the problem.
