Have you experienced minor surgery, an injury or even acne that has resulted in the formation of a raised scar on your skin? Perhaps you’ve noticed that the scar is remarkably larger than the original wound and appears as if it has spilled across the skin. This type of scarring is called a keloid scar, and while not everyone will develop a keloid following a skin injury, it can be quite embarrassing for those that do. What’s more, the scar itself can cause pain and itchiness, or it may decrease a person’s ability to move freely if the keloid formation covers a joint or large area (American Academy of Dermatologists or AAD). As such, many individuals seek keloid scar treatment and/or removal.
Effective treatment and removal of a keloid scar is complex and requires a personalized approach that considers a patient’s age, type of keloid, its location and more. For example, if a keloid scar is on a patient’s earlobe, a surgical approach might include cutting the formation or simply shaving it off in layers. In other cases, multiple treatments might be needed to prevent the development of more keloid scarring in the future.
