FUSION SCAR GEL: KELOID SCARS
For some people, a keloid scar can appear following a surgery or injury, even if the injury is minor. A keloid, classified as a raised scar, is formed because the body produces too much collagen to that area during the healing process. While collagen growth is normal for healing, a keloid scar is known to grow outside of the margins of the original wound. Because of the overgrowth of new tissue, keloid scars may restrict the natural movement of muscles and tendons. As well as, reduce the flexibility of the skin.
Here are some further classifications for a Keloid Scar:
- Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions or shiny fibrous tissue.
- Keloids can restrict movement and reduce skin elasticity
- They can vary in color and are often highly pigmented (appearing darker than normal skin tone).
- They occur more frequently in the second decade of life, 20 years old and older.
- There is a 90% rate of recurrence after surgical removal.
- Studies have shown that keloid scars are more common among those who are of African and Asian descent.
- Keloid scars can be painful.
Treatments for keloid scars can include steroid injections, chemical therapies, laser therapies, surgical revision of the scar, radiation therapies and more.
