Treatment After Keloid Removal
Keloid Treatment that Restores the Sensual Beauty of the Skin
For nearly 18 million people afflicted by these unsightly, sometimes painful, claw-like growths, keloid removal can be elusive. In fact, the majority—nearly seven million sufferers—don’t even know keloid removal is available and believe they have to go through life with this embarrassing condition. As a result, keloids don’t just scar the skin, they can scar a person’s confidence.
Superficial Radiation Therapy is giving countless keloid sufferers new hope and new confidence.
Keloids are actually chronic, non-malignant tumors that form at the site of skin trauma. Individuals who have undergone cardiac, orthopedic, obstetrics, gynecological or plastic surgery often form keloids. Acne and chickenpox scars, ear piercing, burns and other skin injuries can also trigger them. While many people think they simply have to live with keloids, Superficial Radiation Therapy is a highly effective treatment after keloid removal surgery is performed. This is especially good news for the nearly 18 million people whose ethnicity makes them genetically prone to keloids—including African Americans, Latinos and Asians.
Keloid removal often involved surgery. Unfortunately, the keloids usually grew back at each new incision site. With only surgical keloid removal, the non-malignant tumors recurred in over 70 percent of cases. When surgical keloid removal is followed by Superficial Radiation Therapy, recurrence drops dramatically to as low as 10 percent.
