Best Treatments of Keloids and Scar


Clinicians always find it difficult to treat hypertrophic scars and keloids. Various treatment modalities are available.
Intralesional corticosteroids, topical applications, cryotherapy, surgery, laser therapy, and silicone sheeting are the
widely used options. Radiation therapy can also help in cases of recalcitrant keloids. Most recently, pulsed-dye laser
has been successfully used to treat keloids and hypertrophic scars. There are no set guidelines for the treatment of
keloids. Treatment has to be individualized depending upon the distribution, size, thickness, and consistency of the
lesions and association of inflammation. A combination approach to therapy seems to be the best option.
