SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT

When it comes to scarring, keloids and hypertrophic scars are common concerns for many people.

These marks can affect aesthetic appearance and self-confidence. Fortunately, there are effective treatment options available to reduce and improve the appearance of keloids and hypertrophic scars.

Read on and find out all the useful information about it. Our goal is to help you regain your skin’s natural beauty and restore your confidence.

Definition of Keloids and Hypertrophic Scars:

Keloids are raised scars that form after a skin injury. They are characterized by growing beyond the original wound area and having a thick, bulging appearance.

On the other hand, hypertrophic scars are similar to keloids in terms of appearance, but they do not extend beyond the boundaries of the original wound.

Treatment options for keloids and hypertrophic scars:

  1. Combination Therapy: This treatment option may include a combination of techniques such as corticosteroid therapy, cryotherapy (cold treatment), topical application of medications, and massage. Combination therapy aims to reduce the size and appearance of keloids and hypertrophic scars.
  2. Compression Therapy: This technique involves applying constant pressure to the scar using silicone dressings or compression bandages. Compression therapy can help flatten and soften scars.
  3. Laser: Laser therapy is a popular option for treating keloids and hypertrophic scars. The laser can help stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of scars, thereby improving skin texture and tone.
  4. Topical Application of Medications: Some topical medications, such as corticosteroids and silicone gels, can be used to treat keloids and hypertrophic scars. These medications help reduce inflammation and flatten the appearance of scars.

Each treatment is personalized because it has a specific function on the characteristics of the skin and history of the patient.

It is important to have the professional guidance of a dermatologist before defining the ideal therapy.

Preventive Measures and Common Locations:

To prevent the appearance of keloids and hypertrophic scars, it is important to take certain preventive measures. These include:

  • Keep wounds clean and protected to prevent infection.
  • Avoid scratching or picking up scabs from wounds to allow for proper healing.
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure and use sunscreen on areas prone to scarring.
  • Maintain a healthy, balanced diet to promote good healing.

As for the common locations where keloids and hypertrophic scars often appear, these can include the chest area, ears, neck, shoulders, and back.
