Face Scar – Keloid Scarring Removal (Patented)
Keloidal scarring is different from hypertrophic scars. Keloid Scarring is one of the most frustrating clinical problems in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Keloids form after dermal injury with an exuberant an indefinite production of collagen. It is a type of face scar. It has been shown that keloid and hypertrophic scars are derived from fibroblasts producing increased amounts of collagen per cell compared with normal fibroblasts. They tend to occur in highly pigmented individuals with a familial tendency. Keloid formation etiology has numerous theories: (a) altered growth factor regulator, (b) abherrant collagen (c) genetics, (d) dysfunction, (e) sebum reaction and, (f) altered regional mechanics. No single hypothesis adequately explains keloid formation. The various treatments for keloid underscore how little are understood about this disease process.
The present standard of care is kenalog injection on a regular basis with and without surgery and radiation therapy. Recently a patent was obtained for a new product that has proven to be effective in most cases.
