How Does Keloid Treatment Work?
During this procedure, your dermatologist will inject a steroid solution into a keloid. The steroids will break the bonds between collagen fibers in the scar, reducing the amount of scar tissue. In addition, these steroids can reduce redness, swelling, and tenderness of the keloid.
A single procedure may last for only around 15 minutes. For additional comfort, your dermatologist may administer an anaesthetic before the keloid treatment.
Why Should I Avail of Keloid Treatment?
While keloids are generally harmless, they can cause considerable stress for individuals who have them. This is more evident if the keloid has grown on the head or on any other highly visible part of the body. A keloid may also become bothersome if it restricts movement or gets in the way of clothing or jewelry. Having the keloid removed is a surefire way to deal with these inconveniences.
What Can I Expect After Keloid Treatment?
After a steroid injection, a keloid can become softer and flatter in appearance. It may also become more receptive to topical treatments which your dermatologist may prescribe.
Depending on the size of the keloid, an individual may have to undergo more than one treatment to achieve desired results. It is also very important to receive keloid treatment only from a board-certified dermatologist to avoid any side effects.
