Dr. Niteen Dhepe

Best Keloid Specialist in Pune

 

A keloid scar is an inflated, elevated scar that can appear pink, red, skin or darker than the surrounding skin. Keloid scarring is theorized to be caused by an overproduction of scar tissue. Keloid scarring can emerge even after the most minimal types of skin injury, such as acne spots, piercings, or tiny cuts. Keloid scarring can extend far beyond the original site of skin damage, also appear long after the incident, and continue for years if left untreated.

Keloid scars are more frequent on the upper chest, stomach, shoulders, jaw lines, and ear, which can make a person feel self-conscious and want to get rid of them because they appear in more visible areas of the body.

Causes of Keloid Scars

  • Acne scars
  • Burns
  • Piercings
  • Tattoos
  • Scratches
  • Insect bites
  • Surgical incision sites

I am in army, I was travelling to Srinagar by train during which I got stuck with electric shock of 25000 kw due to which I got 65% burn all over my body. These burn marks led to keloid all over my body. I visited several doctors / hospitals for my keloid treatment but all in vain, which led me into depression. Once I was going through YouTube regarding same then I came across Dr. Niteen Dhepe's Skincity. I visited this clinic in September 2021, undergoing my keloid treatment here since then and uptil now I have got 80% improvement. I am very satisfied with the treatment being provided herein Skincity. And I would like to highly recommend everyone with any such problems to direcly visit Dr. Niteen Dhepe's Skincity😊

FAQ's

Some people might want to get rid of their keloids depending on how they look. By examining your skin, your doctor can determine if you have a keloid. To rule out other kinds of skin growths, he or she could occasionally take a skin biopsy.
Although keloids might be uncomfortable or irritating, they are typically not harmful to a person’s health. However, they might only be an aesthetic issue depending on where they are. Fortunately, there are numerous treatments available to aid in the removal of keloids.
The protein collagen, which is present throughout the body, aids in wound healing, but when the body generates too much of it, keloids can develop. Any type of skin damage, including an insect bite, acne, injection, body piercing, burn, hair removal, and even minor scrapes and bumps, can result in keloid formation.
Pulsed-dye laser treatments can flatten larger keloids. This technique has also helped to reduce itching and make keloids disappear. Therapy using pulsed dye lasers is administered over a number of sessions, with 4 to 8 weeks in between each session. Your physician might advise utilising laser treatment along with cortisone injections.

Keloids can keep expanding for weeks, months, or even years. They ultimately cease growing, but without treatment, they do not go away. As was already noted, keloids can come back after being removed.

Skin damage and irritation, such as those brought on by trauma, bug bites, burns, surgery, vaccinations, skin piercings, acne, folliculitis, chicken pox, and herpes zoster infections, can result in keloids and hypertrophic scars.
A surgeon might advise removing a sizable keloid or hypertrophic scar in particular circumstances. In order to heal the surrounding skin and tissue and restore as much of the underlying structure as possible, surgeons must remove keloids that significantly extend beyond the margins of the original lesion, for example.
The primary line of treatment for keloids is cortisone or steroid injections. Additionally, they are capable of treating hypertrophic scarring.
Although keloids might be uncomfortable or irritating, they are typically not harmful to a person’s health. However, they might only be an aesthetic issue depending on where they are. Fortunately, there are numerous treatments available to aid in the removal of keloids.
Additionally, keloids can appear after surgery, getting a tattoo, or getting a body piercing. Sometimes keloids appear three months or longer after your skin has been wounded. Some keep growing for years.
Genetic and environmental factors play a role in keloid development. Darker coloured people of African, Asian, and Hispanic heritage exhibit higher occurrences. The pathogenesis of keloids is thought to be mediated by excessively active fibroblasts that produce large amounts of collagen and growth factors.
Apply silicone gel sheets or silicone gel once the wound has healed. Both of these items are available for purchase without a prescription. They could aid in keloid avoidance. You should apply a fresh sheet or gel to the region each day for the best effects.
Simply put, there is no link between keloid growth and any dietary factors, despite the usual unfounded online assertions that sweets, nitrate-rich meals, alcohol, and caffeine may exacerbate keloids.
Nevertheless, it’s crucial to avoid scratching the scar as it heals. Scratching will only damage the skin and encourage the formation of new scar tissue as the skin attempts to heal itself when scar tissue is already present. As a result of the excessive growth of scar tissue, this makes keloid scars worse.
Raised scars that can be pink, red, purple, or brown at first but eventually get deeper are how they usually present themselves. The position of the keloid and the person’s skin tone can both affect how it appears. Early keloid scars are often round or oval in shape.
