Keloids are dark, raised and sometimes itchy or painful scars resulting from excess collagen growth in response to a wound. While injectable steroids are the traditional treatment of choice for keloids, one increasingly popular treatment for these scars is light.
MultiClear is a device that uses UVA-1 light to stimulate the production of collagenase, the enzyme that breaks down collagen. The protocol is approximately five to ten treatments, depending on the individual.
The result: a flatter, thinner scar with no treatment side effects. But, as with most light-based procedures, results vary from patient to patient and not all keloids will respond optimally.
