If you want to know how to get rid of a keloid scar your in the right place. I know having skin that produces keloid scars can be the most annoying and frustrating thing ever when your a girl that desires clear skin that you can show off. It really sucks when you get a cut and you just know that a keloid scar is coming if you don’t do anything to prevent it.
If you can’t prevent a keloid scar from forming or you already have a keloid scar you can minimize the look of the scar or even possible remove it with different treatments that you can get at a licensed dermatologists office. Here are the following ways you can reduce the look or remove a keloid scar from your body:
Freeze it: A dermatologist will put a large needle/wand through your keloid scar and use liquid nitrogen to freeze it. Once the frozen keloid scar begins to thaw out the scar tissue begins to die and this causes the scar to diminish overtime. This way seems to me the most uncomfortable and time consuming because you have to do this treatment more than once.
Cut it: A dermatologist will carefully cut away at your keloid scar using a surgical knife. Once the keloid scar is removed they simple stitch you up.
Laser it: A dermatologist will carefully cut away at your keloid scar using a laser instead of a surgical knife. When a laser is used the cutting is more precise than using a surgical knife. Once the keloid scar is removed they simple stitch you up.
Inject it: A dermatologist will inject your keloid scar with cortisone. Cortisone is a pregnane steroid hormone and it is one of the main hormones released by the adrenal gland in response to stress. Cortisone helps to dissolve the keloid scar tissue overtime. This reduces the look or even will remove the keloid scar completely.
I have a keloid scar that I had injected with cortisone and I have seen a huge difference in the size and the look of the keloid scar after just a week and a half after. My dermatologist told me to visit her again after 6 weeks to see the results and she will do another injection of cortisone if its necessary.
I hope this gives you an idea on how you can remove a keloid scar. If you try any of these keloid scar removal options and they work for you please let me know!
