When does keanlog 40 injection on the outside of the tip start working?
A week ago I had Kenalog 40 injected on the tip of my nose due to scar tissue. He injected the outside my tip with it, I am 7 months post tiplasty. When will I see a huge difference?

Kenalog takes some time to work.
I would give it two more weeks before evaluating for a second treatment.

Kenalog (steroid) injection into the tip of the nose  March 28, 2012 12:54 PM

You will not see a huge difference but Kelanlog injection works gradually over a period of approx. 4 weeks at which time you may need another injection. Usually a series of 3-4 injections is needed pending on the problem at hand.

Sometimes you need more than 1 injection of triamcinolone, depending on how your skin is responding to treatment. They need to be administered every 4 weeks. If there's no improvement after 3 injetcions, then you could try triamcinolone + 5FU or fractional laser
