How can BM Cosmetic treat keloid and hypertrophic scars?

Keloids and hypertrophic scars are both kinds of abnormal scar tissue that form as a result of excessive collagen production during wound healing. They can cause functional and cosmetic problems, such as stiffness, pain, itching, and disfigurement.


BM Cosmetic offers several treatment options for keloids and hypertrophic scars, based on the location, size, and severity of the scar. Here are some of the treatments:

Silicone Gel Application/Silicon Sheets

This non-surgical and painless method involves applying a thin layer of silicone sheet or silicone gel over the scar. Silicone helps to hydrate and soften the scar tissue, decrease inflammation, and prevent the further formation of collagen. Silicone gel or sheets should be used for at least 12 hours per day for various months to see the improvement.


Cryosurgery is a procedure that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and remove scar tissue. This cosmetic procedure can decrease the height and size of keloids and hypertrophic scars, as well as enhance their skin texture and appearance. This treatment is generally performed in several sessions, with every session lasting a few minutes.


Intralesional Corticosteroids

This is an injection of corticosteroid medication into the scar tissue. Corticosteroids help to decrease itching, inflammation, and collagen synthesis, thereby softening and flattening the scar. Intralesional corticosteroids are generally given one time per month for various months until the desired result is achieved.

Ablative Laser Therapy

Ablative laser therapy is a technique that uses a high-energy laser beam to vaporize scar tissue. Ablative laser therapy can enhance the elasticity, texture, and color of keloids and hypertrophic scars, as well as decrease their height and size. Ablative laser therapy is generally performed in several sessions, with every session lasting 15 to 30 minutes.

Surgical Scar Revision

Surgical scar revision is a surgery that involves cutting out the scar tissue and closing the wound with skin grafts or stitches. This cosmetic procedure can remove large or unsightly keloids and hypertrophic scars, as well as enhance their alignment and shape. Surgical scar revision is generally done under general or local anesthesia, depending on the location and size of the scar.
