There are several treatment options when trying to reduce or minimize a keloid scar. Steroid injections can be placed in the keloid to help shrink the scar tissue and this is performed in a series of injections approximately 1 month apart. The corticosteroid injections can relieve the symptoms of keloids and make them feel softer.
Some keloids can be treated surgically; however, there is a risk that the keloid may return. Complexions Dermatology offers both injection therapy and surgical removal of keloid scars. Once we examine your scar, we can develop a treatment plan to help reduce the size and some of the associated symptoms of keloid, such as pain and itching. We will work together to help you get the best results from treatment. If you have any questions or concerns about keloid scars, call us today at our Danville location (434) 792-0423 or our Colonial Heights location (804) 805-8442.
