Keloid Removal at UKSKIN
A Keloid is an Abnormal Bulky Scar that grows beyond the boundaries of the original scar. When the skin is broken – for example, from a cut, bite, scratch, burn, acne or piercing – the body produces a certain amount of protein called collagen which should stop producing once the wound is sealed. Occasionally this production of collagen doesn't stop and scars continue growing and can become bigger than the original wound.
The exact cause of a keloid is not fully understood. They tend to be more common in people with dark skin and it is thought they may be hereditary. The common areas are on the chest, shoulders, earlobes, but they can occur anywhere on the body. A typical keloid is raised, hard, shiny, hairless, and red or purple at the beginning, after which it can become brown. Sometimes the keloid can cause tenderness, itchiness and disfigurement. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this condition, however, we can make these scars flatter and relieve the itchiness by using steroid injections. If they are big, we can remove them surgically and inject steroids on site at the same time.
Please note we only treat patients aged 18 and over.
