What is a Keloid scar? A keloid scar is a tough, raised scar that often grows larger than the original wound. Keloid scars usually begin as a red or purple colour, before becoming brown or sometimes pale. Keloids are irregularly shaped and tend to enlarge progressively. Unlike scars, keloids do not fade over time, so keloid scar removal may be necessary. Keloid scars are commonly found in areas such as the chest, head, neck and earlobes, but they can appear anywhere on the body. The surface of this type of scar is often shiny, hairless, hard and rubbery. They can cause pain and discomfort and even occasionally lead to restricted movement if the scar is located over or near a joint. Keloid scars tend to occur after the skin has been damaged or wounded by cuts, burns, acne or chicken pox. However, they can also appear spontaneously with no obvious sign of injury or skin trauma. Keloid scars can affect anyone, but they are more common in people with dark skin. Our keloid scar removal London injections are suitable for all skin types. What Does Keloid Scar Treatment London Involve? Keloid scar removal can be completed using a course of corticosteroid injections. A specially trained dermatologist will inject the steroid solution directly into the keloid scar, which will help to diminish its appearance. The steroids work by breaking down the bonds between collagen fibres, which helps to reduce the amount of scar tissue beneath the skin.
