Keloid Removal in Houston


Red, bumpy, and invasive, keloids negatively impact people’s quality of life and self-esteem. However, with modern medicine, keloid removal hasn’t just become a possibility, it has become easily accessible. The Aesthetic Surgery Institute offers keloid scar removal in Houston, helping patients regain their confidence.



What Are Keloids?

When your skin is damaged by a cut, burn, acne, or piercing, scar tissue naturally forms inside the wound to help it heal and protect it from infection and further damage. However, in some cases, collagen-rich scar tissue continues to grow outside of the boundary of the wound. These enlarged sections of scar tissue are called keloids.

For those in search of keloid treatment in Houston, the Aesthetic Surgery Institute offers effective, tried-and-tested keloid removal options to help you once again feel good in your skin.

How Are Keloids Treated?

Keloids can be treated in a variety of ways depending on their size, growth rate, and location. Some of the most common methods include:

  • Excision and Reconstruction – This involves surgically removing the keloid scar and closing the wound with sutures or skin grafts. This method is best for large and persistent keloids, but may be followed by other treatments to prevent the keloid from recurring.
  • Tension-Free Closure – When surgically removing a keloid, it is important to use a tension-free closure technique to minimize the risk of the keloid recurring. This technique involves placing sutures in a way that reduces tension on the wound edges.
  • Simulation – Simulation therapy is a non-invasive technique that uses a silicone sheet to apply pressure to the keloid, flattening it over time. This method is particularly effective for small keloids.
  • Steroid Injections – Corticosteroids in the form of injections or cream can help to soften and shrink keloid scars, as well as reduce any itching or irritation they cause. Steroid injections are particularly effective for smaller keloids or keloids that need to shrink before further action is taken.
  • Laser Therapy – Laser treatment involves using a high-energy beam of light to break down the excess collagen in the keloid tissue. This method is particularly effective for large, raised keloids.
  • Silicone Gel Dressing – A thin sheet of silicone placed over a keloid can produce enough pressure to flatten it. Silicone gel dressing is ideally applied as soon as a scar forms or as maintenance after keloid removal.
  • Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) – SRT is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-dose radiation to reduce the size of keloid scars. It is particularly effective for large and persistent keloids and can be used in conjunction with other treatments like surgery.
