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.
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.
A consultation with our Consultant Dermatologist in London Harley Street is £200.
Prices for Keloid Scar Removal start from £240 in case of steroid injections. Surgical removal of Keloids starts at £1,150. A consultation is always your first step, where you can obtain a full understanding of the severity of your scarring and your treatment options.
With steroid treatments you should notice an improvement in the appearance of your scars within two to three weeks of your first treatment. Usually a course is required. In case of surgery, results are immediate.
In rare occasions Keloid scars may grow back and you may need to be treated again.
