I feel like I've gotten a million of these cortisone shots.
I hate needles too, but it's well worth it to kill the cyst. One shot, and within 24 hours, my cysts were flat. There was a slight discoloration but nothing a little makeup can't cover. The only time it took quite a few shots was this persistent son of a ***** on my cheek that took 6 shots to get rid of. But each time it would get smaller and smaller. My derm visits weren't covered by my insurance because it was considered a cosmetic procedure but I got referrals from my physician so that I could get insurance coverage. I only paid a $5 copay but without insurance, my derm charged $75 per injection. Good luck, it'll work great.
