Keloids

    • These are raised scars where the skin has healed after an injury. Anything that can cause a scar can cause keloid.
    • Some people are prone to forming keloids. More common in young people.
    • A dermatologist can quickly and easily remove a small section during an office visit. Our dermatologists may recommend more than one type of treatment for a keloid. These scars can be difficult to get rid of, and some return after treatment. Using two or more types of treatment often improves results.
    • Treatment options include:
      • Corticosteroid Injections
      • Cryotherapy
      • Laser treatment
