How it works
How does Intralesional Steroid Injection work?
Intralesional steroid injection works by breaking the bonds between collagen fibers that cause keloid and hypertrophic scars. It also prevents further formation of scar tissue by reducing inflammation and slowing excess collagen production. This has the effect of softening and flattening scars, helping them blend in with the surrounding tissue.

Frequently Asked Questions
During the procedure you may feel some discomfort. Numb cream will be applied to ensure maximum comfort. However if you have low tolerance to pain, local anesthetic may be combined with steroid solution to further reduce pain/discomfort.
Depending on the size and severity of the scar, typically 5 sessions are needed every 4 to 6 weeks.
This procedure is best done by an experienced doctor because of the possible side effects which are skin thinning, skin atrophy(depression or pitting in the skin), and hypopigmentation. However, these are usually temporary and will improve after stopping the treatment.
