Comprehensive Review Of Keloid Formation

Some researchers think it may be purely genetic; others think the prevalence in these populations has something to do with sun penetration and melanin, a dark pigment in the skin. Keloids are the result of excessive collagen production. Collagen is a substance produced by a type of skin cells called fibroblasts. These cells are found […]

Removing Keloid Scars

Cryosurgical media like liquid nitrogen affects the microvasculature and causes cell damage via intracellular crystals, leading to tissue anoxia. Generally, 1, 2, or 3 freezethaw cycles lasting seconds each are used for the desired effect. Cryotherapy can cause pain and permanent depigmentation in selected patients. As a single modality, cryosurgery led to total resolution with […]

Keloid Removal

It’s also possible for keloids to form on uninjured skin. These keloids are called “spontaneous keloids.” They usually appear on the chest and develop in people who have a family history of developing keloids. When keloids develop spontaneously, it’s more likely that several keloids will appear. Some women who have had a cesarean section (C-section) […]

Keloids And Hypertrophic Scars

In an outpatient setting, our surgeons can remove excess scar tissue, reconstruct the surrounding skin and other soft tissues, and minimize scarring after the procedure. Compression — This involves using a bandage or tape to apply continuous pressure 24 hours a day for a period of six to 12 months. Such compression can cause a […]

Bio Treatments for Keloid

Keloid scars can affect anyone, but they’re more common in people with dark skin and it’s thought they may run in families. Experts do not fully understand what causes keloid scars, but they happen when there’s overproduction of collagen (the skin’s protein). Imiquimod induces local production of interferons at the site of application. It comes […]
