Keloid scars

Keloid scars can be not only unsightly, but painful, itchy and irritating.

They may arise from ear piercings, surgery, or they can appear with no history of a trigger.

Your Dermatologist will examine the keloid and determine the best treatment for you.

No matter the age of your keloid scar, certain treatments can alleviate the symptoms and appearance. These include injecting the scar with medicine (intralesional corticosteroid), or sometimes surgical revision is appropriate. A combination may be undertaken to optimise the appearance.
