Ear is a common place for keloid formation, often subsequent to piecing. Most ear helix keloids can easily be removed with Cryotherapy. Images below depict treatment results with only one course of cryotherapy. Most ear helix keloids require about three-four rounds of treatments.
Ear Helix Keloid - before treatment
Ear Helix Keloid Immediately after application of cryotherapy
Ear Helix Keloid - one month later
Cryotherapy is repeated once every 6 - 8 weeks until all of the keloid tissue is removed. The remnant of this keloid was treated during this last visit. This patient did not report any recurrence after her last treatment and has not returned for follow up visit either.
