keloid scar treatment IN SHREWSBURY
When a wound heals, it leaves a scar. Keloid scars are thick raised scars which have become lumpy, raised and larger than the original wound. Keloids are commonly seen on earlobes, chest, shoulders and back. They can be resistant to treatments and may not completely resolve. They can develop after very minor skin damage, such as an acne spot, chicken pox scar, burn or piercing.
Keloid scars can last for years and are not a cause for concern but can cause pain, itching, tenderness or a burning feeling. People often want keloid scars removed for cosmetic purposes. They are usually shiny, hairless and feel hard or rubbery. They are more prevalent in those with darker skin and aged between 10-30.
HOW CAN KELOID SCARS BE TREATED?
The two best treatments for keloid scars are steroid injection and laser treatment. This technique serves to flatten the scars and improve the discomfort & itching which can be associated with keloid scars. The redness associated with these scars can improve with pulsed dye laser treatment, which works best in combination with steroid injections. Silicone gels or sheets are only useful in early stages of scarring but don’t usually help established keloid scars.
