How do cortisone shots work?
Cortisone is a chemical found within the body. Cortisone is released by your adrenal glands in response to stress.
Cortisone actually fights inflammation in the body. Therefore, if you wake up with a large and inflamed pimple, a cortisone injection can reduce the inflammation and speed up the healing process. Your pimple can be diminished in as little as 24 hours.
