What are keloids?

Following an injury, a keloid is a raised scar develops beyond the original injury site. These growths are a result of the body overcompensating after an injury, such as a cut or burn. The exact cause for keloids is not known, but the medical community believes that abnormalities in collagen production are to blame for these growths.

What are the best options for keloid treatment?

Keloids are difficult to treat because there is a risk of a new keloid developing in the treatment area. Lasers have been proven effective for addressing some of the issues associated with keloids, including redness, thickening of the skin and discomfort.

Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) after keloid excision has proven to have the highest cure rate of any available treatment modality. SRT is painless and is only available in select treatment centers throughout the country. Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists is a recognized international center for the performance of SRT treatment of keloids.
