Does a Corticosteroid Injection Cause Pitted Skin?

I received a Corticosteriod Injection for acne and it seems like I have pitted skin now. Is this common in situations like this? I have a special event coming up in a few months and I want to make sure this is gone by that time. What can I do to get this to go away? Please help…

Hi nelly1980:  corticosteroids can definitely cause pitted skin.  Get to a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in fat transfer and get this addressed as soon as possible.
