Dr Tran treats all small to mid sized keloid or hypertrophic scars in wollongong and Parramatta/Sydney.
Keloid scar area we commonly treat simply and easily- include the ear, chest ( zipper scar), shoulders and back.
No single method is best for all keloid scars. The location, size, and depth of the lesion; the age of the patient; and the past response to treatment determine the type of treatment used.
The newer the scar the better the response to treatment
For super recalcitrant scar – we found regular steroid injections work best. It’s not just a matter of sticking in a needle and hope for the best.
The earlier you treat your itchy, raised, pink keloid scar the better. The first injections will be the toughest as the scar is rock solid – once soften injections will be easy.
