Scar Reduction Injections
- Treats hypertrophic scars & keloids
- Reduces redness, swelling & tenderness
- Reduces scar tissue
Raised scars and keloids can be treated at Bodyvie with steroid injections. Hypertrophic scars and keloids are formed by an overactive response to healing from trauma to the skin, causing overproduction of scar tissue and collagen resulting in the appearance of raised, red scars. Hypertrophic scars and keloids are harmless but can be cosmetically undesired as their appearance is noticeable.
Steroid injections are administered by our doctors directly to the scar to break down the scar tissue. Steroid injections reduce inflammation by reducing the production of collagen and other proteins that form the fibrous scar tissue.
The injections cause keloids to soften and become flatter to reduce their appearance. Multiple injections may be required to restore a smooth and even texture to the skin.
Treatment is quick and involves the administration of the steroid solution to be injected via a small needle directly to the keloid or hypertrophic scar. Relatively painless, this treatment is only administered by a doctor.
Depending on your scar, as hypertrophic scars and keloids vary in size, you may need multiple steroid treatments to reduce your the size and appearance of your scar. Your doctor will determine the amount of treatments you will need after assessing you scar during your consultation.
You will notice results from your steroid scar reduction injections after your first treatment. Your scar will appear smaller.
