Keloids and Hypertrophic Scars

What Afterglow can do for Keloid and Hypertrophic scars

  • Intralesional injections of steroids
  • ProFractional™ Laser
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing

A hypertrophic scar is a thickened scar that forms due to injury to the skin. The scar does not go beyond the border of the cut or surgical wound. A keloid literally means a "crab-like" scar and extends beyond the border of the affected area. Hypertrophic scars flatten out spontaneously within a year. If the scar is still raised after one year, it will not usually flatten on its own. Keloid scars often continue increase in size for several years.

These scars can be addressed through intralesional steroids or by ProFractional™ Laser and laser resurfacing treatments.
