The Laser Treatment of Hypertrophic and Keloid Scars

In addition to improving the appearance and function of the skin, laser scar revision is an effective treatment option for a wide variety of scar types. Regarding laser scar treatments, nobody does it better than AKJ Skin and Laser Centre Clinics, thanks to their expert doctors who focus solely on scar revision. Drs Selvam and Nirmala, who have over 20 years of experience in the field, skillfully lead the team.

AKJ Skin and Laser Centre is home to cutting-edge, high-powered laser technologies. For Hypertrophic / Keloid scars, doctors use Fraxel (Reliant technologies, U.S.A.) - Fractional CO2 laser and the Genesis (Cutera Vantase) - Long pulsed Nd YAG 1064nm laser.

The advantages of laser therapy for keloids and hypertrophic scars include the following:
  • Microbeams of highly concentrated CO2 lasers heal damaged skin and prompt the body to produce abundant new, healthier collagen.
  • Used to even out skin tone and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Laser treatments are versatile and can be used in addition to traditional surgical procedures and scar revisions.
  • Laser resurfacing can make raised hypertrophic scars on the treated skin look more uniform and smooth.
  • Not only can lasers safely treat facial skin, but they can also treat the skin on other parts of the body.

Akj Skin and Laser Centre’s Laser Keloidal and Hypertrophic Scar Treatment Procedure

Your surgeon will decide on a course of treatment following the initial consultation. More extensive keloids respond well to pulsed-dye laser treatments. This treatment has also successfully reduced itching and the appearance of keloids. Treatment with a pulsed-dye laser typically entails multiple visits spaced out by four to eight weeks. Your physician may advise you to get cortisone injections in addition to laser therapy.

In 35 patients, we used PDL to treat a portion of one scar, while FCO2L was used to treat the other scar. Power = 30 W, Pulse Energy = 50 mJ, and Spot Density = 200 spots/cm2 were the settings for FCO2L. For 585 nm PDL, the parameters used were 9 J/cm2 with a 5 mm spot size. Three treatments were performed on the FCO2L side to for 3 passes to reduce the size of the scar. Two passes were layered on top of each other and applied to the PDL side. Before continuing, our experts completely removed the coagulated tissue.

For four months, our doctors performed the procedures once a month. After this treatment, you'll only need to take mild precautions for about a week, and your skin should be back to normal (though it may be slightly red at first).

At AKJ Skin and LAser Centre, we specialise in treating keloid scars.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it imperative to consult a trained professional when it comes to scars?
Seeing a specialist and getting expert medical advice is especially crucial if you have a complicated scar. Laser specialists, estheticians, and dermatologists may all be needed to treat keloid and hypertrophic scars. Each scar is unique, and at the AKJ Skin and Laser Centre, we tailor treatment plans to it, often combining the expertise of several experts.
How do doctors diagnose whether a scar is a hypertrophic scar?
If the doctor examines the scar closely enough, they will be able to tell if it is hypertrophic or not. A biopsy may be recommended if the scar worsens or changes in appearance.
What causes a hypertrophic scar and what are the symptoms of one?

A hypertrophic scar can be recognised by its telltale symptoms. Examples of these are:

  • Rough, protruding skin over the injured area.
  • Your wound site has developed a pink, red, or purple tinge to the skin.
  • Scars are most common on the skin-overlying joints and the upper trunk (back, chest, shoulders, and upper arms).
  • Scar tissue typically forms within a couple of months after an injury.
  • A scar may be tender and itchy, and even painful.
  • If you have a scar on your skin right over a joint, it could restrict your range of motion.
When do keloid scars become harmful?

Keloid scars are not harmful, but they can be painful and itchy. However, these scars can have an even more significant psychological effect, especially on younger patients, by causing intense emotional suffering and a dramatic loss of self-esteem. There is zero danger of cancer from keloids.

Should complicated scars be treated as soon as possible?

It's best if this happens as soon as possible. Scars are best treated as quickly as possible after the wound begins to heal.

In what ways might one experience adverse reactions to this treatment?

Hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation, blistering, and crusting are all potential side effects, especially for people with darker skin. Since the CO2 laser device creates microscopic holes in the skin's surface, the days following treatment are marked by intense swelling, redness, and the occasional oozing of serum from the treated skin.
