A keloid scar is a raised scar that develops after a skin injury. This type of scar grows larger than the original wound, possibly due to dysfunction in your natural wound-healing processes.
Typically, a skin injury triggers your body to send more blood and collagen to the area to support healing. When you produce too much collagen, a keloid scar can form. The scar isn’t harmful to your health but may negatively affect how you feel about your skin’s appearance.
Keloid scars may run in your family. The condition is more common in people with black or brown skin, especially those between 20-30 years old.
Orlando Dermatology Center specializes in keloid scar removal. The dermatology team has the experience necessary to guarantee the efficient removal of scars and ensure the greatest possible cosmetic outcome.
Orlando Dermatology Center has an international reputation for its keloid scar-removal services. The dermatology team uses a variety of techniques, including:
Cryodestruction is an innovative technique that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze a keloid scar from the inside out.
Keloid scars that don’t respond to cryotherapy may require surgical removal. The in-house plastic surgeon uses cutting-edge technology to remove scars with a high degree of accuracy.
SRT is a therapy the team can use following keloid scar removal surgery to prevent new scars from forming.
The team uses the SRT-100™ machine to deliver a precise, calibrated dose of radiation therapy into the superficial layers of your skin. The radiation destroys the cells responsible for keloid scars.
