Chicago Keloid Treatment & Removal

I. Definition Of A Keloid:


A keloid is a greatly enlarged scar that projects above the skin surface. The skin heals by formation of scar tissue, which at first is often red and somewhat prominent. As the months pass, a scar usually becomes flat. Unfortunately, sometimes scars enlarge to form firm, smooth, hard growths called keloids.

Typically a true keloid will grow outside the zone of trauma or injury.
