How we treat keloid scars:
Dr. Blatnoy takes advantage of the CryoDestruction Technique, which actually freezes the keloid from the inside out with liquid nitrogen. The freezing cold of liquid nitrogen causes a thermal effect that destroys cell growth, thus removing the keloid. With no risk of worsening the scar, and a 97% SUCCESS RATE, the CRYODESTRUCTION is the best method available! Best suited for keloid scar removal on ears. Other scars may be subject to using the SRT machine.
What are keloid scars?
Keloids are overgrown scar tissue which don’t stop regenerating after covering the scarred area but instead, continue to grow above the skin while spreading beyond the afflicted area. Unlike regular scar tissue, keloid scars don’t subside over time.
What causes keloid scars?
- Abnormal Scarring
When the aforementioned takes place, in some instances, uncontrollable cell growth begins and a keloid is formed over the area with the capability to even grow beyond it.
- Raised skin, sometimes with a shine
- Grows and can become unsightly and itchy
- Tender, may be painful to the touch
- Begins on small scarred area
Why is Cryodestruction™ is a preferred method for keloid removal?
Cryodestruction™ is an innovative, highly effective technique for keloids removal. During the procedure, the keloid is frozen from inside out using liquid nitrogene.
What is the chance of a keloid growing back after the Cryodestruction™?
Unlike other procedures, the re-growth risk after Cryodestruction is relatively very low, and doesn’t exceed 3 %.
Why can’t I have my keloid simply being removed surgically? Cut-off?
Keloids usually grow back after surgical removal. Often times larger than they were.
