Keloid Scars – A keloid is a thickened scar in which there is overgrowth of scar tissue and collagen beyond the borders of the original scar.
Treatment –Keloids are harmless but can be itchy or painful for some individuals. Raised or hypertrophic scars and keloids can be treated with Scarguard MD and ScarSheet MD. Both products are designed to flatten and shrink raised scars.
Contracture / Burn Scars –are sometimes deep scars that can occur from burns and may cause the skin to tighten. In some cases, the scars may limit normal mobility.
