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.
