What Causes Keloids?

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.

Keloids can be caused by trauma inflicted on the body; some examples including:

  • A surgical incision
  • Serious acne
  • Ear piercing
  • Receiving a tattoo
  • Injury Shaving

How Do You Remove Keloids?

For many men and women, living with keloids can be difficult and cause discomfort. Traditional surgical techniques to remove a keloid unfortunately can result in the keloid(s) growing back into an even larger keloid. Dr. Chernoff has developed a keloid removal technique with a high success rate and most importantly the keloid(s) do not return!

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.
