Is a keloid making you feel self-conscious of your skin? Keloids are raised scars left behind from past injuries, burns, piercings, or any type of skin trauma. Keloids can appear nearly anywhere on the body. If a keloid is causing you discomfort or continues to reappear, Chernoff Cosmetic Surgeons offers expert keloid removal.
Dr. Chernoff is a world-renowned expert in scar improvement. Dr. Chernoff specializes in Keloid removal and uses a multimodality approach to remove keloids completely. Dr. Chernoff uses multiple types of lasers to remove the keloid. During the removal process, Dr. Chernoff applies a growth factor to encourage healthy tissue growth and discourage keloid reformation.
Dr. Chernoff has experience and success removing keloids of all sizes and in multiple areas of the face and body.
Keloids can be caused by trauma inflicted on the body; some examples including:
- A surgical incision
- Ear piercing
- Receiving a tattoo
While it can be hard to remember how you may have developed a keloid, the sight of a keloid can be difficult to forget. Keloids develop when the body ceases to create new tissue during the healing process. Typically raised from the skin and reddish in color, keloids can cause numerous complications such as itching, stinging, or burning. If large enough, a keloid can inhibit movement and effect your daily performance. If a keloid is bothering you, schedule your consultation with us and ask about keloid removal.
