Intralesional Steroids

Conveniently located to serve Miami and Ft. Lauderdale.

What to Expect from Your Intralesional Steroid Therapy

A common first line of treatment choice. The medication is injected into the keloid scar. It may decrease the keloid size, but rarely will it flatten out the keloid completely, unless it is a small keloid, to begin with. It can alleviate itching and pain in the area. This usually requires multiple injections repeated every three to four weeks. Some of the adverse effects include telangiectasias, skin and subcutaneous fat atrophy, skin necrosis (death), and ulceration. This treatment is usually reserved for smaller lesions. Recurrence rates vary from 9-50%.

Other modalities that don’t have strong evidence of the efficacy of treatment and decreasing keloid recurrence are creams, laser/light therapy, compression therapy, massage therapy, silicone gel pads, and cryotherapy.

Be careful with what you read elsewhere and do your homework. The only two medical specialties that have formal training in their residency programs and treat keloids very frequently are the dermatologists and the plastic and reconstructive surgeons.Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons are the only specialists with formal training in residency that will take care of the large and most complex keloids and ugly scars from head to toe, using surgical techniques in which many times flaps have to be formed to cover large defects (Z-plastics and rotation flaps). As Plastic Surgeons, aesthetic principles are always considered to get the most pleasing results.

At The Keloid Plastic Surgery Center, keloids are what we do. We are the only Plastic Surgery Office in South Florida run by two board-certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, and one of the few in the U.S.A. using the latest XRT technology to treat keloids with proven lower recurrence rates.

Our doctors at The Keloid Plastic Surgery Center are board-certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons that have treated keloids from most if not all parts of the body. Dr. Roberto Mendez and Dr. Gabriel Salloum have treated not only the simplest but also the most complex and severe types of keloids. Among them are keloid scars after surgery for the removal of the appendix, removal of the gallbladder, removal of part of the bowel, C- Section, Cardiothoracic surgery, liposuction, Breast Surgery, Tummy Tuck, and orthopedic surgery. We have treated patients from all over the world, including from Haiti, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
