What Are Keloid Scar Creams?
Keloid scar creams are topical products that contain vitamin E and onion extract. The application of such products can produce marked improvements in how scars look. These include scars from accidents, surgeries, adhesions, and even stretch marks.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help reduce inflammation and the formation of excess collagen. Onion extract can aid in reducing the inflammation, redness, itchiness, and pain associated with keloids. Quercetin, a flavonoid found in onion extract, helps to avoid excess collagen production, making it ideal for wounds that could form into keloids.
Am I a Good Candidate for Keloid Scar Creams?
As long as you are not allergic to onion extract, vitamin E, or any of the other ingredients used in keloid scar creams, you can use these products. Regardless of whether it is big or small, any keloid scar can be reduced with these creams.
Patients must have realistic expectations regarding how much of a difference these creams can make for severe scarring. The same goes for the rate of improvement that patients can see when using these products.
Your Keloid Scar Cream Consultation
Patients who want to know what keloid scar creams can do for them can benefit from a consultation at The Keloid Plastic Surgery Center. During a consultation, patients can learn which creams are available, how they help reduce scarring, and which cream is best for them.
While some keloid scar creams are sold as over-the-counter medications, others can only be obtained with a prescription. Creams vary in both effects and effectiveness.
Applying Keloid Scar Cream
When applying keloid scar cream to a scar, patients must first clean and dry the area where the scar is located. They can then apply the cream to the area.
Patients need to note that applying too much of the cream will not guarantee faster results. At the same time, applying too little can slow down the rate of improving the appearance of the scar.
Many creams must be applied several times a day to deliver optimal results. Follow the directions that come with the keloid scar cream as closely as possible.
How Much Do Keloid Scar Creams Cost?
There will be differences in the prices of keloid scar creams depending on several factors. The size of the container will affect the cost, as will the exact product chosen and whether that product is prescription or OTC.
