“My scars tell a story. Remind me of when life tried to break me but failed”. Own your scars because they show that you survived. Some scars of invisible to the outside world but don’t let those scars inside you destroy you. “Some days I’m a Goddess. Some days I’m a wild child. And some days I’m a fragile mess. Most days I’m a bit of all three. But everyday, I’m here, trying to be the best version of me”. Always strive to be the best version of yourself no matter what life is throwing at you. #beagoddess#beawildchild#loveyourscars#myscarsmystory#bestversionofyou#survivor#raredisease#invisibleillness#dermatomyositis
Cristi @ascarredbeauty is one of the most courageous women we know.
She battled through 4 open heart surgeries, 2 Fontan procedures, Pacemaker surgery, and a Pulmonary Heart Valve Surgery and was left with a debilitating chest keloid; only to CONQUER them all.
She is inspirational!
Large keloid scars are usually hard to deal with.
🏥 Here at Kare Plastic Surgery & Skin Health Center, our patients see huge changes in their scars from just a couple treatments!
✂️💉 While smaller keloid scars can usually be treated with laser therapy, larger ones require excision or Kenalog injections.
A keloid can develop at the site of any injury. After a wound has occurred to the skin both skin cells and connective tissue cells (fibroblasts) begin multiplying to repair the damage.
🔗 Scars are made up of “connective tissue”, gristle-like fibers that are deposited in the skin by the fibroblasts.
With keloids, the fibroblasts continue to multiply even after the wound is filled in. This causes the keloid to project above the surface of the skin and form a large mound of scar tissue.
If you have a keloid that you want to get rid of,
