Laser removal keloid

Common Questions and Answers about Laser removal keloid


Avatar n tn There is the risk of infection and further keloid formation. Other treatments you can consider include cortisone injection or laser treatment. Cryotherapy or freezing keloids with liquid nitrogen may flatten them but often darkens the site of treatment. This method must also be done by an expert to prevent further harm.
Avatar n tn Surgical removal of keloids may lead to the keloid coming back larger than it was before the excision. It is difficult to comment on the authenticity of the website you mentioned. It would help if you can talk to someone who actually have experienced their services or if you contact their office. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn has anyone had removal of keloid, followed by radiation, followed by steroid injections? and if so, did the treatment work? also, how often did you get the injections of the steroids? 3 weeks ago i had the reaccuring keloid behind my ear removed followed by 3 days of radiation. i and had the first injection today. i have 2 differing opinions on how often i should get the injections.
Avatar n tn Some stubborn cases of folliculitis have been responsive to laser-assisted hair removal. This process uses a laser to destroy the follicle. This reduces the scarring that results from folliculitis. The steroid injections cause the keloid to become atrophic, or thinner, and are repeated every three to four weeks until the keloid has been resolved to the individual's satisfaction. Other therapies include laser treatment or radiation therapy, and topical treatments are undergoing study.

4666104 tn?1357749187 So an infection started and then I developed a nasty keloid scar. The scar is now double in size compared to my original birthmark. He decided to do steroid injections and laser treatment on it. The high dosage of steroid injections he gave me caused my skin to skin in drastically. I have a crater on my shoulder and I still have keloid bumps on the scar along with the tenderness and redness. I'm very frustrated.
Avatar m tn After treatment, I'm left with massive, RAISED, dark red, keloid scars that are 2-3 times the size of the original mole. I've been using Dermatix Ultra for over 3 months and I can't say I've seen any improvements at all. Now my whole body is covered with horrible looking raised scars. Is there anything I can do now at this stage or do I have to live with it? Thank you in advance!
Avatar n tn t grew back so that logicaly leads to the conclusion that my scar should not turn into a skin cancer, and i was wondering why some doctors use lasers to burn mole's and this doctor was afraid to use the simple vascular laser for this scar, so i was wondering can i ask another doctor to do the vascular laser treatment because my scar is changing colours and is a little bit raised 1mm, it has shrinked in size so i know for certain that is not a keloid and this doctor was persuating me to do cryoth
Avatar f tn after looking up various other removal procedures (such as laser) and decided to pay them a visit. The Colorectal health centre accepted my insurance (HMO) otherwise banding would be $600 per visit...first my Dr asked what problem was and I told her. She used a instrument that is like the anal speculum to look inside my anal cavity and saw that I had 3 interior hemorrhoids. I had my banding that first visit. It was painless, a lil uncomfortable but quick.
Avatar n tn Yes, I too expected to have a total Hysterectomy & removal of ovaries & Endometriosis by Laparascopic surgery. Well, that did occur but I knew that after my surgery that something was very wrong. My Sigmoid Colon had been ruptured. I was hugely distended & kept questioning this to no avail. I even suggersted that I had Peritonitis, but was told to think happy thoughts! Finally, day 5 in the hospital I felt my bowel really "Go" whilst on the toilet.
Avatar n tn Hi, I burned my mole and now i have a hypertrophic(1mm)above skin surface mature scar instead of this mole,for almost 2 years. I was just wondering could i get a vascular laser treatment for this scar?
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms the possibility of hypertrophic scar or keloid is there. No infection after a cut will persist for a long time like 4 years. Hypertrophic scars are not dangerous and improve with age but keloid scars can itch or become irritated if they grown in size and show some rubbing with the clothes. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and take a second opinion to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar f tn a few years ago whilst getting my hair straightened, very small part of my head was slightly burnt, now i have what looks like a wart. its not discoloured or dry or anything, it also has hair (hair usually grows there anyway) growing from it. its about the size of a rubber on the tip of a pencil. ive been wanting to remove it for ages, but all the wart removal creams say "dont use if hair is growing from wart". im not even sure what it is! should i just use the creams anyway?
Avatar m tn Hello, Ear lobe near the piercing is a frequent site for epidermoid cyst or a keloid. While removal, both can get infected. Treatment options for keloids include intralesional injections of steroids, surgery, laser treatment, silicone sheets, cryotherapy, radiation treatment and injections of fluorouracil. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn There are no methods as such to prevent keloids but treatment options are there including steroid injects, radiation, freezing, laser treatment and surgical removal. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn Hey, I have freeze burns on my arm from treating moles with blemish free, It got rid of the moles but my skin has had three big red blotches for two months now since the blisters peeled away. I also have a fairly bad keloid from abraiding my moles and applying a bloodroot product called dermatend.
Avatar m tn Years ago I was receiving laser hair removal on my entire brazilian area. After that, I began getting brazilian waxes. About 2-3 years ago I noticed a small, round bump (smaller than the zero on most keyboards) that was flesh colored, somewhat firm to the touch (solid, not filled with fluid) slightly raised, but relatively smooth, not bumpy. My immediate thought was that it was a keloid/scar as a result of shaving and/or having the laser used on such sensitive skin every month for years.
Avatar m tn Hello, For small warts several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts.Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation.
Avatar n tn (i should mention the removal was done on my left cheek) the area is also still suite red and i'm having a few hairs follicles trying to come out. When this happens the area swells up even this normal after the excision of a mole? my dr has me booked in for a laser treatment to minimize scaring in 2 weeks and im wondering if maybe i've formed keloid or this simply is just the healing process?
4113881 tn?1415853876 I have been having laser tattoo removal for some time now. My last treatment was 12 days ago and the nurse who did it was new. Well....during the treatment she went slower than the usual nurse and it hurt so bad. It blistered, scabbed, and taking a very long time to heal AND is really red. I followed the aftercare to a T and have called the doc's office who is worthless. "Give it more time"....ok.
Avatar f tn I see alot of people on the web w the same upper right back pain after gall bladder removal, but no one ever saying they got better and never a medical reason. This scares me. I had my gall bladder removed in Sept 2013, the pain in my upper right back by and around my shoulder blade is getting worse. It hurts the worst at night, i can hardly sleep the pain is so severe. I have no insurance so i cant go have a ton of tests done or get pain meds. Im miserable. Anyone ever find an answer???
Avatar f tn I am undergoing surgery for the removal of axillary breast tissue under my right arm. The surgery is scheduled for 20 Aug 07. I was briefed throughly that the casuses could be hereditary, due to lactating, etc. I noticed mine shortly after nursing my youngest child (23 months) and it has been bothersome ever since. I have gone to the doctor so many times and they always tell me maybe it is my lympnodes or cancer.. I had a breast ultrasound done and there is no trace of cancer.
Avatar n tn I then developed Heparin induced thrombocytopenia had to have platelet and blood transfusions, Back to work 8/3/09 did well until 9/10/09 woke up with severe pain in the knee - my Orthopaedist did a drainage of bloody fluid and it grew staph lugdenensis, had a picc line inserted for vancomycin and was referred to a physician who specializes in 2 stage knee revisions.
