Keloid and hypertrohic scars are abnormal growth of skin mostly seen on chest or other areas of injury. They are at times itchy and painful. They are notorious for recurrence and do not respond adequately to most of surgical treatment.
Treatment of choice for these lesion are intra lesional steroid injection, silicon gel sheet application with pressure garment and Cryo surgery using Liquid nitrogen. At shanti Skin & Laser Centre, we are using a combination of these modalities for advance treatment of keloids.
For ear lobe keloids, we use CO2 Laser to remove these lesions followed by intra lesional steroid injection to prevent recurrence.
