Keloids are overgrowths of the scar tissue that develop around a wound, usually after the wound has healed. It expands far beyond the original scar, producing reddish deformed skin.
By using a series of intralesional corticosteroid treatments, the proliferation or growth of skin cells in the keloid scar can be stopped until they flatten and blend with normal skin.
Is this for me?
If you wish to improve the appearance of scars and keloids, this treatment will help greatly.
How long does it take and how often can I have it done?
Several injections are made with each treatment. You need a series of injections to improve the scar tissue. The interval between injections would be 1 month.
How long is the downtime?
