Kenalog is a commonly used steroid injection to treat hair loss, cystic acne, and keloid scars. Once the corticosteroid is injected in a scar it works by preventing the substance that causes the production of collagen from being produced, resulting in flatter less raised scars. When injected in cystic acne it works by reducing inflammation causing a reduction of the cyst in 1-5 days. When injected into the scalp it decreases swelling around the hair follicles allowing for better blood flow and nutrient absorption into the area.
