Keloid Treatment in New York and New Jersey
Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offer keloid treatment to the residents of New York and New Jersey.
What Is Keloid Treatment?
Keloids are common among people with dark skin types. These growths are a result of an injury, such as a cut or burn. As the area heals, a raised scar develops that is larger than the original injury site. The exact cause for keloids is not known, but the medical community believes that abnormalities in collagen production are to blame for these growths.
Keloids are difficult to treat because there is a risk of a new keloid developing in the treatment area. Lasers have been proven effective for addressing some of the issues associated with keloids, including redness, thickening of the skin and discomfort. Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) after keloid excision has proven to have the highest cure rate of any available treatment modality. SRT is painless. This treatment is only available in select treatment centers throughout the country. Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey is a recognized international center for the performance of SRT treatment of keloids.
