What is Keloid Removal?

Keloid removal treatments aim to reduce or eliminate thick raised scars. These scars, known as keloids, can develop following skin injuries such as cuts, surgeries, or piercings. They can be stiff and rubbery. They vary in colour from pink to dark brown. Keloid removal reduces scarring, provides comfort, and improves skin appearance. Treatments range from non-invasive to surgical, each with its own benefits.

What is Keloid Removal Effective For?

Keloid removal addresses various concerns, offering both cosmetic and health benefits. Keloid removal is effective for several reasons:

Improves Appearance

Keloids are large, raised scars that can be very noticeable and bothersome. Removing them can improve the appearance of the skin, especially in visible areas like the face, neck, or hands.

Reduces Discomfort

Keloids can cause discomfort, such as itching, pain, and tenderness, and are often irritated by clothing, shaving, or jewellery. Removing them might reduce these symptoms and make routine activities more comfortable.

Prevents Growth

Keloids can continue to grow over time, becoming larger and more uncomfortable. Effective removal can stop this growth and reduce the chance of keloid coming back, especially when combined with other treatments like steroid injections or radiation therapy.

Areas Suitable for Keloid Removal

Keloid removal can be performed on various parts of the body where keloids commonly form. These areas include:

Keloid Removal Treatment Options

There are several treatment options available for removing keloids. Each method has its benefits and is suitable for different types of keloids. The main options include:

Steroid Injections

Steroid injections are commonly used to treat keloid scars to help soften the scar tissue and reduce inflammation. This method involves injecting the steroid directly into the keloid over multiple sessions.

Q-Switch Laser

Q-switch laser uses high-intensity light pulses to break down scar tissue and reduce the redness and size of keloids. This non-invasive procedure involves directing laser light at the keloid, heating and breaking down the pigment and scar tissue over several treatments.

Fractional CO2 Laser

The fractional CO2 laser creates tiny wounds in the keloid, promoting new skin growth and reducing the appearance of the scar. This method uses a laser to create micro-injuries in the keloid, and it is particularly effective for larger or thicker keloids.


Cryotherapy freezes the keloid with liquid nitrogen. This treatment involves applying extreme cold to the keloid, which breaks the scar tissue causing it to break down and eventually fall off. It is effective for smaller keloids and may be combined with other treatments.

Choosing the Right Keloid Removal Method

Selecting the appropriate keloid removal method depends on the keloid’s size, location, severity, and the patient’s health and preferences. A consultation with Dr. Sam Pradeep is recommended to determine the best approach.

Why Keloid Removal?

Keloid removal is often recommended for several reasons, offering physical and psychological benefits. This includes:

Aesthetic Improvement

Removing keloids can improve cosmetic appearance, especially in visible areas like the face, neck, or hands, leading to a more polished appearance. This can boost self-esteem and confidence.

Skin Comfort

Keloids located in sensitive areas prone to friction can cause irritation or discomfort. Keloid removal can address this issue, making daily activities more comfortable.
