Facial Keloids – Case Study 2 – Bilateral Facial Keloids:
This 28-year-old gentleman first presented to Dr. Tirgan in February 2013 with several keloid lesions on both sides of his face. He had developed his first facial keloid about 4 years earlier and since then had received several steroid injections and had undergone surgery. His facial keloids have regrown, causing him considerable discomfort and anxiety/depression. He was also suffering from constant infections and purulent drainage from the keloids on the right side of his face. He had resorted to always wearing hoodies to conceal his keloids.
With proper medical treatment, using the combination of cryotherapy and intra-lesional steroid injections, we were able to control his keloids within a year. Thereafter, he would return to our office for spot-treatments of new spots, or areas that would start growing. The images shown below were taken in July 2019 when new spots were treated again with the same method.
