Keloid Scar Removal
Most of us would like to do away with scars on our face or body. Scars can occur after surgery, burn or bad acne.
Tiny scars or scars in an area which can be camouflaged easily are not a concern as opposed to larger scars that cannot be concealed by clothing or make up. It may leave you thinking if there is a way to eliminate them.
The honest truth is that we can never eliminate scars completely. However, we at Chelsea Cosmetics follow certain techniques to decrease their size and change their appearance.
What is the reason for Scarring?
Scarring occurs after an injury and is a common characteristic of the healing process. There are many factors that influence their appearance and treatment.
The extent of the scar, the intensity of the cut or wound and the area of the wound are all factors that matter. Your age, genes, gender and ethnicity are also important.
Types of Scars:
Keloid scars occur due to an over active healing mechanism. They expand outside the injured area. In the long run, they may impede activity. Keloid scars can be treated by surgery, steroids injection, or sheets of silicone to even out the scars.
Cryotherapy (freezing therapy using liquid nitrogen) can be performed to treat small keloid scars. Keloid scars can be prevented by applying pressure treatment or gel pads with silicone when one is injured. This type of scars is more often seen amongst people with darker skin.
Contracture scars develop when your skin has burnt. These scars tighten the skin which may impede movements. They can extend further, impacting muscles and nerves.
These are elevated red scars identical to keloids. However they do not extend outside the original injury. Treatments for hypertrophic scars include injections of steroids to minimize inflammation or silicone sheets which even out the scars.
Acne scarring is fairly common. The scars appear if you’ve had acne. There are different types of acne scars, ranging from deep pits to scars. Treatment is determined by the type of acne scars which you might have.
