Keloid Removal

What Is Keloid?

Keloid is an overgrowth of the scar tissue that develops around a wound, usually after the wound has healed. It expands far beyond the original scar. Rather than stay in a straight line, for example, after a surgical incision, it spreads outwards.

One of the most common methods is injecting steroids and local anaesthetic into the keloid scar itself. The injections are done with a tiny needle, but can be a bit sore. This is called ‘intralesional corticosteroid treatment:

  • The steroids and anaesthetic can help to stop the proliferation of the skin cells in the keloid scar (what are called fibroblasts).
  • Approximately one injection is given a month, for 4-6 months.
