Injections of the steroid (triamcinolane) are the most effective way of treating most Keloid scars, though this will depend on the size and location of the scar. After 4 to 6 sessions of this treatment the appearance of Keloids will have improved dramatically. If the scar is particularly large, it will usually be reduced in size with surgery. This will then be followed up with a series of postoperative steroid injections.
Keloid Scars Before Procedure
Steroid treatment for Keloid scars takes between 15 and 30 minutes per session. Surgical removal of Keloids can take up to 1 hour depending on size.
