    Keloid Treatment/Removal – Frequently Asked Questions

    Keloids are raised, thickened scars that form as a result of excessive scar tissue formation after an injury or surgery. They can be itchy, painful, and unsightly.

    The exact cause of keloids is unknown, but they are believed to occur as a result of an overproduction of collagen during the healing process.

    Keloids can be treated with a variety of methods, including corticosteroid injections, cryotherapy, laser therapy, surgical excision, or radiation therapy.

    If you have a keloid that is causing pain, discomfort, or affecting your self-confidence, it is recommended to see a dermatologist for professional treatment. Dermatologists can evaluate the size and location of the keloid and recommend the most appropriate treatment.

    The length of time it takes to treat a keloid depends on the type of treatment used and the size and location of the keloid. Some treatments may require several sessions over a period of weeks or months.

    Some keloid treatments may cause temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, or scarring. In rare cases, more serious complications may occur. It is important to discuss the risks and potential side effects with a dermatologist before undergoing keloid treatment.

    Keloids cannot be prevented, but there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing them. This includes avoiding unnecessary skin trauma, minimizing tension on incisions, and wearing pressure garments after surgery or injury. If you are prone to keloids, it is important to notify your healthcare provider before undergoing any procedures.
