How To Deal With Keloids On The Face?
hello good night, I want to ask if a few weeks ago there was a wound on the face but it became like fine wrinkles and there are traces that stand out a bit in my opinion like going to be keloid roughly what can be treated with ointment what is the most effective?
Good evening, thanks in advance for the question.
Keloids or scar tissue are part of wound healing, but occur in excess. Normally if the skin is injured, the tissue will form scar tissue to cover the gaps and remodeling so that the skin becomes smooth again. But in some people the formation of scar tissue can be excessive so that it overflows out of the gaps so that there thickening occurs and we know as keloids.
There are several alternatives to get rid of keloids, although the results can differ from one person to another, including:
- corticosteroid injections in keloids
- cryotherapy is liquid nitrogen which will freeze the keloid. This can deflate the keloid but usually the scar will be dark in color.
- silicone gel: silicone gel will be bandaged on the part of the skin that is bersoid.
- fluorouracil injection
If you are interested in doing some of the above, you can discuss it with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon related to the treatment. In addition to invasive measures such as those already mentioned, some supplements that contain lots of vitamin E might also be helpful in treating scars, but may be more effective in the early stages of scars. For creams, ointments or gel remover scars may also be able to be one alternative, usually the content in it is a mixture of steroids, vitamin E, and silicon. In addition to natural methods, there are also medical methods for handling scars such as by dermabrasion and microdermabrasion techniques, which are by scrubbing the surface of the scars and stimulating skin growth so that the layers of the skin appear smoother and flatter.
Thus the information that we can convey, may be useful.
