STEROID INJECTION FOR SCARS

Corticosteroid injections directly into the scar are a great treatment used for keloids. Injections are used rather than topical forms of corticosteroids because the tissue cannot absorb the medication through the skin well enough to be effective in most situations. Corticosteroids reduce the production of collagen and proteins that form fibrous scar tissue as well as inhibit inflammatory factors. This activity causes keloids to soften and become flatter.
