About Intralesional
Steroid Injection

Intralesional steroid injection is administered directly into the skin lesion using a fine needle. Before injecting the steroid, the site of injection is cleaned thoroughly with alcohol or antiseptic solution. The intralesional injection in dermatology is intradermal and not subcutaneous so as to prevent any dent on the skin. The initial dose of the injection depends on the lesion being treated.

The intralesional corticosteroid injection can be full-strength triamcinolone or diluted with local anesthesia or saline solution. The injections are repeated every few months till the lesions are active. The new hair growth that occurs from intralesional steroid injection is visible within four to six weeks. If not performed correctly, there could be delayed side effects of intralesional injection in dermatology like cutaneous and subcutaneous lipoatrophy, white or brown marks at the site of injection (also known as leukoderma), telangiectasia, localized hypertrichosis, or steroid acne.

This method of treatment is one of the most common forms of treatment for alopecia areata. Intralesional corticosteroids are injected into bare patches of skin with a tiny needle. These injections are repeated about every four to six weeks and are usually given by a dermatologist. New hair growth from corticosteroid injections is usually visible within four weeks.

OUR RESULTS
ARE THE GOLD STANDARD

“Hi, I am a 40 year old male who has been suffering from pattern baldness since my 30s. Due to various responsibilities like career, family, children, loans etc. I was not able to treat my hair loss. I just ignored it. However, more and more people started commenting about my baldness and it was a source of major insecurity. Finally, I was researching on Youtube and came across Dr Dhananjay Chavan's video about the topic, he seemed very knowledgeable and I knew that I had to consult with him. I am very happy about my transplant results and glad that I took this step.”
