Advanced Superficial Radiotherapy Treatment for Keloids NYC New York NY

Keloids are a type of painful and/or itchy scar tissue that may form over a wound from an injury or surgical procedure. They can also form due to a piercing, acne, chickenpox and even a scratch.  Most often, they appear on the chest, back, shoulders and earlobes. Keloids are 15 times more frequent in highly pigmented ethnic groups than in Caucasians.
Living with keloids can be difficult and even embarrassing.  Surgery alone is usually not the best option as the keloid may grow back and re-form in the scar area, at times recurring larger than the initial growth.
