Keloids and Scars Specialist

What are Keloids or Scars?

Keloids are Scars that are the result of injury to the skin where collagen forms around the injured area. In many cases, scarring creates small raised tissue areas on the surface of the skin. There are cases where collagen is formed, leaving raised scars, and other instances where the scars are depressed; these are known as atrophic scars. This could be the result of:

  • Burns 
  • Insect Bites 
  • Cuts 
  • Tattoos 
  • Injections 
  • Acne

Some of the scars can be lifelong if not treated. Dr. Obayan has unmatched expertise in scar removal within the Austin area.

How do you remove Keloids or Scars?

Most treatments for keloids are designed to reduce or flatten the skin surface in order to improve the appearance of the skin. This includes options such as injections and topical creams which could help with pain or itching. Where necessary Dr. Obayan will perform surgical procedures to restore the skin surface. A list of the possible treatments includes: 

  •  Injection treatments 
  • Silicon sheets and gels 
  • Topical creams 
  • Freezing with liquid nitrogen 
  • Oral medication
