Keloid Removal

It would be very surprising to know that a minor wound is often a reason behind a keloid. Keloid is a raised scar but not a hypertrophic scar. They are overgrown scar tissue that mainly gets developed around a wound after it has been healed. Keloids can develop in the area of surgical wounds, burns, body piercings, acne, and boils. Unlike hypertrophic scar that develops around a wound, keloid scars grows beyond the wound. The discomforts experienced because of keloids are

  • Restricted movement (if it appears in a joint)
  • Burning sensation
  • Pain
  • Tender and itchy skin.
