Keloid Scar Removal

Improve Face and Body Keloid Scars in Santa Rosa, Ca

If a keloid scar is making you feel self-conscious, we can help. Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery offers expert keloid removal. Keloids, raised scars left from past incisions, injuries, piercings, burns, or any skin trauma, can appear nearly anywhere on the body.

Dr. Chernoff, a renowned expert in scar improvement, specializes in keloid removal. He uses a multimodality approach to remove keloids completely. During the removal, Dr. Chernoff utilizes multiple lasers to thoroughly treat the scar and applies a growth factor to encourage healthy tissue growth and discourage keloid reformation.

Dr. Chernoff’s experience in successfully removing keloids of all sizes and in multiple areas of the face and body, allows him to offer excellent results even with difficult scars.

Keloids can be caused by any trauma, including:

  • Surgical incision
  • Ear piercing
  • Tattoo
  • Injury

Keloids develop due to an overgrowth of scar tissue during the healing process. Typically raised and reddish in color, keloids can cause several complications. Itching, stinging, or burning can be due to keloid scarring. When large enough, a keloid can even affect your daily performance by inhibiting movement.

Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.
