Joint injections at SF Aesthetic Medspa are a targeted treatment designed to alleviate pain and improve joint function in individuals suffering from various joint-related issues, such as arthritis or injury-related pain. These injections typically contain a combination of a corticosteroid and a local anesthetic, providing anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. In some cases, hyaluronic acid or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be used, depending on the patient’s specific condition and treatment goals. The procedure involves precisely injecting the therapeutic substance into the joint space under sterile conditions, which can offer relief from pain and improve joint mobility. Our experienced medical professionals are skilled in administering these injections, ensuring accuracy and minimizing discomfort. Joint injections are a minimally invasive option for those seeking an alternative or supplement to oral medications or more extensive interventions.
