How much does it cost to remove a keloid?

Keloids can be a nuisance at best and have a detrimental effect on our confidence and wellbeing at worst. They happen when too much scar tissue forms after a skin injury, such as a piercing, acne, chickenpox, surgery or a cut or trauma to the skin. No one really knows why some people suffer from keloids and some don’t, but it seems that those with darker skins are 15 to 20 times likely to get keloids and those under 30 and those whose immediate family suffer with them. They can appear as small, medium or extremely large lumps or growths. They can be skin coloured, red, or darker than the skin surrounding them. They can appear anywhere on the body but usually turn up on the ears (after a piercing), shoulders, neck and upper chest.

At The London Keloid Scar Clinic, we specialise in removing and managing keloid and hypertrophic scars and offering a vast range of specific treatments, including surgical shaving, steroid injections, and device-led technologies and pressure garments. But how much does it cost to remove a keloid? And will they stay away for good, once removed?

As everyone is unique and every keloid scar has a different size, shape, and removal requirement, it is hard to determine precisely how much you will pay for keloid removal, without one of our specialists examining you first. The London Keloid Scar Clinic is conveniently located in Central London on Harley Street, famous for cosmetic surgery and medical excellence since the early 1800s. We can provide a keloid removal cost estimation, but we request that you attend a no-obligation, pre-treatment consultation and examination to advise you on which treatments would be right for your specific case and let you know exactly what your treatment will cost.

Treatments for Keloid scarring can include

  1. A triple combination of surgical removal, steroid injections and pressure earrings – the most popular and highly-effective of our keloid removal treatments, the keloid is physically removed using a special device called a Hyrefractor machine. This device cauterises the skin as it eliminates the keloid, offering an instant result. Another option is to use a surgical scalpel (excision) then to stitch the wound. Then, to avoid reoccurrence of new keloid tissue, a course of steroid (Kenalog) injections and chemotherapy (5 FU) are administered and pressure earrings, which are worn, 16 hours a day for up to a year, post-treatment.
  2. A course of steroid (Kenalog) and Chemotherapy (5 FU) injections only – for those not wishing to take the surgical approach, or for those where surgery is not necessary – this treatment may take longer than a triple treatment approach, however, we still see some amazing results with this treatment

Treatments start at £650, and the cost will depend on several factors:-

  • The location, the size and the severity of your keloid scar
  • How many keloid scars are to be removed
  • Aftercare management – repeat procedures and treatments.
  • Length of course of steroids
  • The success of initial removal and whether further keloid occurs
  • Your ability to manage your aftercare at home and to keep us informed of any changes in the appearance of your skin, following your scar removal

At The London Keloid Scar Clinic, we also offer an interest-free finance option, so that you can spread the cost of your treatment and pay over several months. This helps our patients achieve their goals, maintain their results and feel amazing after their treatment, without the pressure of a considerable up-front cost.
