Intralesional therapy is a procedure in which a drug is injected directly into a skin lesion for faster action. It is often used for conditions such as keloids, acne and vitiligo. In many cases, intralesional therapy eliminates the need for long term oral or topical therapy. It can be very effective as the injection works deep into the tissue where topical medications cannot penetrate. In some cases, intralesional therapy is combined with cryotherapy to treat keloids and other dermatological conditions.
