Keloid Scarring

We are specialists in safe non-surgical treatments to enhance your natural beauty. All the treatments offered are carried out by professionals trained specifically in the procedures offered.

A keloid scar is a type of scar which, depending on its maturity, is composed mainly of either type III (early) or type I (late) collagen.

It is a result of an overgrowth of granulation tissue (collagen type 3) at the site of a healed skin injury which is then slowly replaced by collagen type 1. Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions or shiny, fibrous nodules, and can vary from pink to flesh-coloured or red to dark brown in colour. A keloid scar is benign and not contagious but sometimes accompanied by severe itchiness, painand changes in texture. In severe cases it can affect movement of skin.

Laser treatment is a proven method of reducing the redness of keloid scarring.keloid scarring
