Although keloids are technically ‘harmless,’ these large masses of tissue can be bothersome, itchy, and downright unsightly. And depending on their size and location, they can also be a major source of physical and emotional pain. The good news is that it’s possible to remove or improve the appearance of keloids through a wide range of non-invasive treatments (such as superficial radiation therapy or laser skin treatments) and avoid surgical removal.

Using the latest technology in reconstructive and cosmetic procedures, The Keloid Plastic Surgery Center team with its plastic surgeons can help you achieve skin that you’re proud of through non-surgical keloid and scar removal treatments, including compression therapy, injections, and more.

Benefits of Non-Invasive Keloid Treatments

If you have one or more keloids and hypertrophic scars, you may have fiddled with the idea of getting them surgically removed. But contrary to popular belief, surgical excision (i.e., removing the excess tissue, like a keloid, with a sharp scalpel) is not always the best treatment choice for keloids.

Why? Because keloids form an overactive response to wound healing after a skin injury, which means that making a new incision to remove them can trigger the formation of even more scar tissue and worsen skin conditions. In other words, if you’re prone to developing keloids, it is very likely that undergoing a surgical procedure to remove them (which involves creating a new wound in the skin), will cause the keloid to form again shortly after the procedure.

Non-invasive scar removal treatments, on the other hand, have been shown to have a lower recurrence rate because they work with your skin to curb inflammation and excess collagen formation.
