Scars often result from surgery or some other type of cut to the skin. Some people develop a type of scar called a keloid. Keloid scars are unsightly and sometimes uncomfortable, but keloid treatment is more advanced today than it ever has been and offers alternatives that were not available even a few years ago. One of these innovations includes a device that is called a CryoShape and which uses a freezing method to remove the keloid.
A Unique Way to Remove a Scar
Keloids occur when too much collagen interrupts the healing process and is deposited in the area of the scar. Keloids are unusually large and can cause discomfort and itchiness, and even pain. Methods such as CryoShape freeze the area, destroying the cause of the keloid – deep scar tissue. It freezes the tissue all around the keloid scar, and more often than not, it removes the keloid in the first treatment. The freezing method is relatively painless and produces only a slight amount of discomfort. It also reduces the chance that the keloid will reappear, which is of utmost importance to those who have this type of scar.
Keloid scars can occur on any part of the body, including the ear, chest, neck and shoulder. The CryoShape freezing methods work wonderfully regardless of the body part affected, and reduce the itching, swelling, redness and hardness often associated with keloid scars. The entire procedure takes only moments, and is usually done on an outpatient basis. It is done with a hand-held advice that is light in weight and produces no side effects.
If you have a cut or incision that turns into a keloid scar, you have some amazing options. You no longer have to settle for living with the scar for a lifetime, or uncomfortable but ineffective treatments. Today, you can have the keloid scar frozen off, which is painless and quick, and includes very little chance of reoccurrence and no side effects. If you have a keloid scar, don’t just accept it. Do your research, and choose the most efficient method of removing the scar.
