What are Keloids?
Hypertrophic scars may occur when an incision or skin injury forms dense fibrous tissue along these areas. When the fibrous tissue extends beyond the borders of the original wound then the term Keloid is used.
Hypertrophic scars and keloids can be more common the darker skin color one is. It is also more prevalent in certain areas of the body such as the sternum and along the mandible border. Keloids also form on areas of the face and neck.
Scar Revision for Keloids
There are a range of nonsurgical treatments that can reduce the appearance of hypertrophic scars and keloids. In many cases, these treatments may be combined for better overall results. It is important to note that these treatments may not provide permanent results as keloids can continue to grow post-treatment. Additional treatments may be required after some time.
Scar massage or compression may help to decrease scars. Other initial treatments may involve ointments such as hydrocortisone or a silicone gel. Next, injections of a corticosteroid into the scar every 4-6 weeks will decrease the size. Lasers can also be used to help decrease and blend in scars.
Surgical scar excision is performed usually as a final option. Scar excision uses special plastic surgery techniques and sutures to remove and hide scars.
