Choosing a keloid specialist – London Keloid Scar Clinic

Choosing a keloid specialist: When a wound on the skin heals, it can leave a scar. In most cases, these scars are flat and will fade in time. However, if you are someone who experiences keloid scarring, you will know that any wound that is inflicted on you, can results in this type of scar.

What is a keloid scar? What causes them?

A keloid scar is an enlarged, raised scar which can appear as pink, red, skin-toned or darker than the skin which surrounds it. It is thought that keloid scarring occurs due to an over production of scar tissue. If someone experiences keloid scarring, it can occur even after the most minor forms of skin damage, such as acne spots, piercings or small cuts. Keloid scarring can spread way beyond the original area of skin damage, can develop long after the injury and will last for years if un-treated.

Keloid scars more commonly appear on the upper chest, stomach, shoulders, jaw lines and ear, which can mean that a person who experiences them feels self-conscious and would like to get rid of them, as they tend to be placed in more visible parts of the body. All skin types can experience keloid scarring. However, they tend to be more common in people with dark skin – such as those from Africa, African-Caribbean and South Indian communities.

Although Keloid scars can be unsightly, they can be itchy and painful, if located on a joint, they can also limit movement, having an effect on daily activities such as sports and general mobility.
