Keloids and Hypertrophic Scars Removal Treatment

 

Remove and reduce keloids and hypertrophic scars with treatments

Keloids and Hypertrophic Scars are large, bulky scars that are unsightly and distressing.  There is usually a genetic component to it and often follows a cut or an injury to the skin.  The abnormal scarring process leads to the formation of these thick scars.

They can grow to be much larger than the original injury that caused the scar.

Anything that can cause a scar can cause a keloid. This includes being burned, cut, or having severe acne. Keloids can also develop after you get a body piercing or a tattoo, or have surgery. Keloids sometimes show up 3 months or more after your skin is injured. Some continue to grow for years.

 

Symptoms of keloids

Keloids can have the following characteristics:

Appear and grow slowly. It can take 3 months up to a year before you see the first signs of a keloid. Then it takes weeks or months for it to grow. Sometimes, they continue to grow slowly for years.

Begin as a raised pink, red, or purple scar. A keloid is usually a raised scar with a flat surface. The colour tends to darken with time and ends up being darker than the person’s skin, with the border being darker than the center.

Feel different than the surrounding skin. Some keloids feel soft and doughy. Others are hard and rubbery.

Keloids can cause pain, itching, or tenderness. When they are growing, some keloids may be itchy, tender, or painful to the touch. These symptoms usually stop once the keloid stops growing.

How to treat it?

A combination of treatments are available and include:

  • steroid injections,
  • lasers and
  • topical silicone applicants; these can be used to minimize and lighten such scars.
