What is a Keloid?

A keloid scar simply means your skin has suffered a wound. This is most often caused by an injury or through surgery. There are tissues in your body called fibrous tissue. These tissues are also known as scar tissues and they will form scars right over a wound. Sometimes an excess in scarring tissue develops and causes a hard growth which results is severe scarring. This growth is referred to as a keloid and can be a lot bigger than the original injury.

A keloid is a type of tumor but it is not malignant. They are considered chronic and most often will form right after surgery. There are other causes for these tumors including burns, piercing your ears, chickenpox and injuries to your skin. Unfortunately Asians, Latinos and African Americans can be genetically prone to the forming of keloid tissues.

Keloids do have certain symptoms and they are listed below.

Keloid Removal with the SRT-100TM

Keloids can be treated, so it is not a condition you have to continue living with. The treatment involves superficial radiation and is incredibly effective in removing keloid scars. Keloid removal with the SRT-100TM has a success rate that is over 90%. Previously, removing keloids did require surgery but the problem was that the keloids often grew back. With surgical removal, the keloids grew back in 90% of the cases. That number drastically drops with superficial radiation therapy, as less than 10% of the keloids grow back.

This method of removal is precise and uses a specifically calibrated dosing of superficial radiation. The cells that actually form the keloids are destroyed. As the incision has a chance to heal the skin stays soft. This procedure is considered non-abrasive and is done in your doctor’s office. The process takes just a few minutes. Depending on the severity of the incision site, more than one treatment may be needed.

This treatment has the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration when it is used to treat scarring caused by an injury or surgery, and has been called The Keloid Cure due to the high success rate.
