Keloid Scars and the Scarology® Difference
A keloid is an abnormal wound healing response to trauma including cuts, scrapes or surgery. It is different than a hypertrophic (or thickened) scar in that a keloid is usually the result of excessive tissue.
Although this tissue forms to protect the injury at times, this scar tissue can grow too much, forming smooth, hard growths called keloids. Keloids are benign, but sometimes accompanied by severe itchiness, pain, and changes in texture.
A single topical therapy alone will not reduce the appearance of a keloid scar and it is the most challenging scar type to treat successfully. Surgical revision can be costly and lead to more keloid formation. Steroid and 5FU injections have a limited use, but require administration by a physician.
Scarology® has the only scar treatment on the market with 3 unique steps that can work on different aspects of a keloid to help prevent pain, promote healing and improve the colour texture and appearance of your scar.
The Scarology® Difference
Gentle skin exfoliation can remove dead skin cells on the outermost skin surface.
Scarology’s® Ultimate Scar Healing Cream stimulates collagen deposition, improve blood flow and wound hydration, reduce redness and improve texture.
The compressive silicone sheet reduces scar itchiness and helps to prevent pain that is sometimes associated with keloids with regards to friction from clothing as well as sun exposure, which may darken the scar.
I am so impressed and continue to be amazed with my patient's scars after they use Scarology. I strongly encourage every one of my surgical patients to use this product. Nothing else is this effective.

Scarology® vs a Leading Skin Care Brand
Before and After
Severe trauma from a car accident. The wound was initially raised, irregular and dark purple in color. Scarology was used as directed on the forehead scar for approximately 2 months and the scar has significantly faded and is completely smooth. The smaller scar on the right is barely even visible.
