The steroid Triamcinolone Acetonide is injected into the problem area, causing it to shrink, flatten, and fade after several sessions. The dosage and frequency of injections depend on the size of the area to be treated.
What it targets:
Hyperthrophic scars (thickened, wide, or raised scars) and keloids
There may be minor swelling of the injection site, but there’s usually no downtime. The injection can cause some discomfort, so it’s usually combined with an anesthetic like lidocaine.
