Don’t Let Keloids Scar Your Skin and Your Confidence

Superficial Radiation Therapy with the SRT-100 Vision is a Highly Effective Keloid Removal Treatment in Austin

Are you one of the nearly 18 million people affected by unsightly, sometimes painful keloid scars? You do not have to go through life with this embarrassing condition that can scar your confidence, too. Keloid removal is possible.

What is a keloid scar?

When the skin is wounded — whether through surgery or injury — fibrous tissue called scar tissue forms over the wound. In some cases, excessive scar tissue grows, forming a smooth, hard growth over the incision or injury. This growth is called a keloid and is often much larger than the original wound.

Keloids are chronic, non-malignant tumors that often form following surgery, but may also be triggered by other skin traumas, such as acne and chickenpox, ear piercing, burns and other skin injuries. Some people may be genetically prone to keloids, including African Americans, Latinos and Asians.

Symptoms of keloids include:

  • A flesh, pink or red-colored bump
  • A raised, lumpy or ridged area of skin
  • Scar tissue that continues to grow over time
  • An itchy patch of skin

Keloid Treatment

You do not have to live with keloids; Tru-Skin Dermatology offers Superficial Radiation Therapy with the SRT-100 Vision, a highly effective keloid removal treatment in Austin with a cure rate of more than 90 percent. In the past, keloids treatment involved surgical removal, but in many cases, keloids grew back at the new incision site. Unfortunately, with surgical keloid removal, the recurrence rate is as high as 90 percent. When Superficial Radiation Therapy follows surgical keloids treatment, however, recurrence drops below 10 percent.

The SRT-100 Vision delivers a precise, calibrated dose of Superficial Radiation Therapy, safely destroying the cells that form keloids, keeping the skin smooth as the incision heals. This non-invasive, painless keloid removal treatment in Austin is performed right in our office and only takes a few minutes. Patients may require a series of treatments, depending on the incision site.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved The SRT-100 Vision to treat keloids caused by surgery or injury, and the SRT-100 Vision has earned the moniker “The Keloid Cure” for its ability to successfully remove keloids. It can also be used as a preventative treatment to ensure keloids do not have the chance to grow in patients who may be predisposed to developing them.
