Hypertrophic C-section scar before and after steroid injections

Cortisone treatment of hypertrophic scars after cesarean section (before and after photos)

Cortisone treatment of keloid and hypertrophic scars is a treatment with steroids (e.g. Kenacort 10), injected locally to prevent keloid scarring and as a keloid treatment by injecting a crystal suspension into the scar. One purpose of steroid injection is to reduce the number of fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen). In addition, steroids have a strong anti-inflammatory action. As a result of cortisone treatment, keloids are reduced and flattened and become paler.
