Keloid Scars

A keloid scar is a raised scar left on the skin after a wound has healed. You cannot get rid of it, but treatment can help improve how it looks. A keloid scar usually appears a few weeks to years after you damage or injure your skin, such as after a cut, burn or acne. A keloid scar usually grows for months or years and becomes bigger than the original wound. While it’s growing, it may feel itchy or painful. This usually stops once it’s finished growing.

At Skinzone Clinic, we offer multiple treatment options for keloid scars. These include ointments, dressings, injections, lasers, and surgery. With regular treatment appearance of a keloid can considerably improve and symptoms can disappear.
