Intralesional Injections for Keloids, Scars, and Contractures

Keloids, Scars, and Contractures: Causes and Treatment

Keloids, Scars, and Contractures result when abnormal tissues develop during wound healing, causing skin lesions. Scar contractures result from large open wounds, hypertrophic scars are a result of an abnormal response to injury or trauma, and keloids begin as hypertrophic scars and eventually extend to other areas.

Intralesional Injections

Intralesional Injections have been used as treatment for skin conditions such as vitiligo, alopecia, and psoriasis and to treat issues such as hypertrophic scars, keloids, and contractures.

An Intralesional Injection is considered the standard treatment for most skin conditions. It is designed to deliver a specific concentration of a specific medicine to the area where the skin lesion is found. The aim is to promote healing without harmful side effects. Corticosteroids like triamcinolone acetonide are commonly used in Intralesional injections. The dosage will be determined by your doctor, taking into careful consideration factors such as the type, location, and size of the lesion.
