SRT Keloid Removal (Superficial Radiation Treatment)

Keloid not suitable for Cryodestruction? Use SRT.

To cure the keloids that are not suitable for Cryodestruction, we offer surgical excision (removal) followed by Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT). This is a highly effective keloid removal treatment with a cure rate of up to 95%. Unfortunately in 50-70% of the time keloids grow back within a year after being surgically removed. However, when surgical removal of keloids is followed up by SRT, recurrence rate drops to 5-10 percent.

The SRT-100 machine delivers a precise, calibrated dose of radiation therapy that only goes skin deep. This low dose of superficial radiation therapy safely destroys the cells that form keloids. The treatment is performed in the office. The treatment is non invasive and painless. Usually 2 or 3 treatments are required, performed in 2 or 3 consecutive days. The procedure has been approved by the FDA, and is very well established for many years.

The benefits of SRT are:

  • 90-95% cure rate
  • Low downtime and minimal lifestyle restrictions.
  • Minimal scarring
  • No need for post-procedure aftercare.
