Keloid scarring is the result of the body’s attempt to repair itself. After removing the keloid, the scar tissue may grow back again, and sometimes it grows back larger than before.

Examples of keloid treatments include:

corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation

moisturizing oils to keep the tissue softusing pressure or silicone gel pads after injury

freezing the tissue to kill skin cells

laser treatments to reduce scar tissue

radiation to shrink keloids...
