Exploring keloid scar removal options at EK Clinic Brackley

Keloid scars can be frustrating and distressing for those who suffer from them. These raised, thickened scars extend beyond the boundaries of the original wound and can be difficult to treat. You can get keloid scars on any part of the body, but they're most common on the chest, shoulders, chin, neck, lower legs and ears.

Keloid scarring can happen after any sort of injury or damage to your skin such as a cut, burn, surgery, acne or a body piercing. Whilst the scar is growing, it may feel itchy or painful, this usually stops once it's finished growing. If it's on or near a joint, the joint can be uncomfortable or difficult to move.

There are several options available for keloid scar removal at EK Clinic Brackley that can help individuals find relief and regain confidence in their skin.

In this blog, we will explore some of these options to provide a comprehensive overview of potential solutions. At EK Clinic Brackley we are CQC registered for this treatment within our minor ops theatre. Our vastly experienced plastic surgeon Mr Kamil Asaad will assess the keloid scar and determine the best solution for treatment. Here are some of the potential options.

1. Corticosteroid Injections:
One of the commonly used treatments for keloid scars is corticosteroid injections. These injections help to reduce inflammation, flatten the scar, and minimize itching or pain. The medication is directly injected into the keloid, and repeated sessions may be needed to achieve desired results. This is a prescription medication and should only be administered by a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. We have that covered at EK Clinic.

2. Silicone Gel or Sheets:
Silicone gel or sheets are another non-invasive option for keloid scar management. These products create a protective barrier over the scar, helping to moisturize the area and soften the scar tissue. Regular application or wearing of silicone gel or sheets can gradually flatten the keloid and improve its appearance over time. In addition to this we can offer prescription steroid sheets for at home use. These are prescribed by our experienced plastic surgeon and we train you how to use these at home. We have been seeing some epic results in clinic.

3. Surgical Excision:
If other treatments fail to yield satisfactory results, surgical excision may be considered. This procedure involves surgically removing the keloid scar tissue. Assessment here is vital as our plastic surgeon Mr Kamil Asaad will determine if this option is a viable option for you and discuss the potential risks and benefits.

There are other available options for keloid scar removal one of which is Cryotherapy and involves freezing the keloid scar with liquid nitrogen to destroy the excess scar tissue. This procedure stimulates the body's natural healing process; however, we do not recommend this approach due to the potential to worsen the treated area.

Finding effective keloid scar removal options can provide relief and improve the appearance of scars. The choice of treatment depends on various factors, including the severity of the keloid, individual preferences, and the guidance of a healthcare professional. From corticosteroid injections and silicone gel to surgical procedures there are several options available to help individuals tackle keloid scars.
