Self-Care Tips for Keloids

  1. Keep the Area Clean: Keeping the affected area clean can help prevent infection and reduce the risk of keloid formation. Use a gentle cleanser and warm water to clean the area twice a day.
  2. Apply Pressure: Applying pressure to the affected area can help flatten the keloid and reduce its size. Use a silicone gel sheet or compression bandage to apply pressure to the area.
  3. Massage the Area: Massaging the area can help improve blood flow and reduce the size of the keloid. Use a gentle circular motion to massage the area for several minutes each day.
  4. Avoid Irritation: Avoid activities that can irritate the keloid, such as scratching or picking at the area. Also, avoid wearing tight clothing or jewelry that can rub against the keloid.

    Treatment Options for Keloids

    At Qazi Cosmetic Center, we offer a range of treatments to help manage keloids. Here are some of the most effective treatments:

    1. Corticosteroid Injections: Corticosteroid injections can help reduce inflammation and flatten the keloid. This treatment is typically done in a series of injections over several weeks.
    2. Cryotherapy: Cryotherapy involves freezing the keloid with liquid nitrogen to reduce its size. This treatment is typically done in a series of sessions over several weeks.
    3. Laser Therapy: Laser therapy can help reduce the size and appearance of keloids by targeting the blood vessels that supply the keloid with nutrients.
    4. Surgical Removal: In severe cases, surgical removal of the keloid may be necessary. This treatment is typically done under local anesthesia and may be followed by corticosteroid injections or other treatments to prevent the keloid from returning.
