Ear Piercing Scar Revision

When most people get their ears pierced, they plan on having a small hole with flat surrounding tissue that is comfortable and easy to decorate with jewelry. In some cases, a bump develops instead. It’s a scar. These can be caused from placement problems, when jewelry doesn’t fit right and from impact injuries. The earlobe and the helix, where the outer flap joins cartilage and forms the silhouette of the outer ear, are both prone to keloid scarring. Other pierced ear injuries are caused from frequently wearing heavy earrings that pull down on the skin or when an earring is forcibly ripped out of its hole through the enclosed skin.

Piercing Scar

Different types of scars can form, including flat, hypertrophic, and keloid scars. The bump or ball is common in piercings with extremely low blood flow, like ear cartilage.

There are several methods to removing scars from ear piercings that have gone wrong.Depending on the size and severity of the scar, a combination of any and all of these methods can be effective. Some more modern approaches with less scientifically proven results include pressure treatments, intralesional injection therapy (IIT) and chemical peels.
