This type of scarring includes serious scars that are large protruding scars. It can form as a result of a minor injury, serious injury, or infection. This mass of extra scar tissue forms a large bulging area that is covered in thinned, red, sensitive skin. It can often occur after ear piercing, or surgical procedures.
Treatment is simple, effective and involves only mild, short-lived discomfort. Treatments involve several visits to the doctor, usually spaced apart by 3-4 week* intervals. A combination of drugs with anti-inflammatory properties is injected into the scar to reduce the abnormal scar activity and hence shrink the scar tissue to create a flatter appearance.
