  • Keloid & Hypertrophic Scar

Introduction

After the skin has been injured, fibrous tissue develops over the injury to repair and protect it. This tissue is scar tissue. 
Keloids are formed when scar tissue grows excessively. They are thick, wide, and often raised. They are usually much larger than the wound. Keloids can affect any part of the body, but they are generally found on the earlobes, cheeks, shoulders, and chest. 
Similar to keloids, hypertrophic scars are raised, thick, and wide scars that are formed over an injury. However, unlike keloids, hypertrophic scars are milder and do not grow beyond the original wound.

What Are The Causes Of Keloids And Hypertrophic Scars?

Keloids and hypertrophic scars can form over most skin injuries including:

Keloids and hypertrophic scars are formed due to the body having an abnormal response to the injury or trauma. The cells produce too much collagen if the wound is under a great deal of motion or tension (such as wounds over a joint), inflamed or infected, or left to heal without stitches.

What Are The Symptoms Of Keloids And Hypertrophic Scars?

The following are the symptoms of keloids at the wound site:

The following are the symptoms of hypertrophic scars at the wound site:

Keloids and hypertrophic scars can cause tenderness, irritation, and discomfort. They can also be itchy and painful. But they are not harmful to health. 

However, many people believe that these scars negatively impact their appearance, especially in the case of keloids which tend to be very large. 

Laser Treatment For Keloids And Hypertrophic Scars

Keloids and hypertrophic scars can be very difficult to correct. People try many remedies to reduce their scars like silicone sheets, ointments, massage therapy. But these methods do not always work. Keloids, in particular, have a high recurrence rate. But fortunately, due to advancements in laser technology, it has become possible to erase keloids and hypertrophic scars! 

At Arra Aesthetics, we use the RecoSMA laser developed by LINLINE to treat keloids and hypertrophic scars. The RecoSMA laser completely replaces scar tissue with healthy tissue without damaging or heating the skin.

Benefits Of Laser Treatment For Keloids And Hypertrophic Scars

Some of the benefits of using the RecoSMA laser device for scar removal are:

We were based in UK when I had severe burn on my right hand. I was undergoing burn dressing daily almost for 3 months there. But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics. He explained the latest revolutionary Recosma LASER technology for wound and keloid. Although I was tense and worried about my wound, I decided to give it a try for this new laser therapy. To my surprise the wound healed completely by the end of 3rd session which was fron 10 days from my consulting session. The keloid scars have become soft and thin, also reducing in thickness after recosma laser.I am very happy and satisfied with my treatment.Dr. Vasant Gholave is highly experienced plastic surgeon. He is gentle and friendly. The clinic has advanced laser machines and the facility provided is very standard and cleanliness is maintained very much.I had wonderful experiences in Arra clinic . I highly recommend the clinic to people.

I was suffering from excess fat on belly. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave, Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon at Arra Aesthetic, Pune for fat reduction surgery. Initially, I was not sure about what exactly is required, Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. And if at all Liposuction, which technology shall I choose.He explained me everything in details, about options of non-surgical fat reduction VS Liposuction Surgery. He further explained me about different Liposuction Technologies, like Conventional Suction Assisted Liposuction, Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, Water Jet Liposuction, Power Assisted Liposuction.I chose Laser Lipolysis and underwent the procedure 2 months back. I got flatter tummy and good shape. I am happy with best liposuction result.Thank you sir and I recommend him as he is best Cosmetic Surgeon in Pune.

I had hair transplant surgery (FUE) done at the clinic. Its been around 15 days now and the transplanted area looks excellent with good density of hair. Dr. Gholve explained all aspects of the surgery, post treatment care and after treatment medication requirements prior to the surgery. I strongly recommend Arra Asthetic for hair transplant surgery.

Initially i was anxious about the lasers as I had read many cons and misconceptions on internet but I hardly felt any pain/ burning and skin got back to normal on 4th day it self.Only strict precaution i had to take was sun protection for first few week and that was taken care by sunscreen given by doctor.I would recommend this clinic as a excellent centre which will tackle all aesthetic aspects.
