A keloid forms when scar tissue continues to develop once a wound has already been sealed. Keloids grow above the skin and are usually pink or purple in appearance. While keloids may be tender or itchy, they are typically harmless. Numerous treatment methods are currently available for keloid scars; however, most require multiple treatment sessions or only provide short-term results.
For nearly 18 million Americans afflicted by these unsightly, often painful, claw-like growths, keloid removal remains elusive.
Until now. With SRT-100 Superficial Radiotherapy we now have an effective option for treating these unwanted scars.
Keloids are removed through surgical excision using a scalpel, and then the area is treated with the SRT-100 Radiotherapy. Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT) treatment following surgical removal of keloids is proven effective at inhibiting the regrowth of these unwanted, unsightly, abnormal scars.
To find out if your keloids can benefit from SRT-100, schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists.
The SRT-100™ delivers a precise, painless, calibrated dose of gentle X-ray that penetrates only a few millimeters into the skin. It is a highly effective, painless, and cosmetically attractive alternative to surgery in selected cancers and patient populations. SRT treatment for skin cancer is covered by most medical insurances.
The SRT-100™ treats non-melanoma skin cancers found on the surface of the skin. It effectively treats lesions on the face, neck, chest, back, arms, and legs. It is especially useful for difficult-to-treat areas including the nose, ears, eyelids, lips, and scalp where a surgical excision may leave noticeable scars. SRT is also a great option for patients considered too high risk for surgery.
SRT-100™ delivers a precise, painless, calibrated dose of gentle X-ray that penetrates only a few millimeters into the skin. When applied after surgical
excision, it is more than 90% effective at preventing the recurrence of keloid scars. (Without SRT, keloid scars reappear at a rate greater than 50% and they are often larger than before!). SRT treatment after keloid removal is covered by most medical insurances.
