Scar Injections

Scar Removal and Injection Treatments

Scar injections are one form of scar removal treatment of keloid scars. Steroids are injected directly into the scar tissue to help decrease the itching, redness and burning sensations that these scars may produce. Sometimes, the scar injections help to decrease the size of the scar. Other scar treatment options include cryotherapy to freeze off the scar, pressure therapy and surgery. The method used for scar treatment will be based on a number of factors including:

  • Sensitivity
  • Preference
  • Other underlying conditions
  • Scar location
  • Scar size
