Keloid removal in London: A keloid scar is a scar that looks very different from an ordinary one and can appear from a normal skin trauma infection or a wound, such as a cut, burn, acne scar or surgical incision.
Keloid scarring is more of a condition rather than an individual skin concern, as if you are prone to keloid scarring, they can occur all over the face or body, but usually appear on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, jawline, midline of the stomach or the ears.
Keloid scarring is caused by the over production of collagen, following a cut or breaking of the skin. Collagen itself is actually a substance which helps wound healing. However, in cases of keloid scarring, this collagen goes in to overdrive and over-compensates this healing, resulting in a raised, red or skin coloured bumpy scar, which can be larger than the original wound itself. Anyone can experience keloid scarring. However, it more often is experienced by those with darker skins or those who have a family history of keloid.
Where in London can I receive keloid scar treatment?

Here, you can liaise with some of the most highly-qualified and extensively experienced skin specialists and receive some of the most state-of-the-art and effective treatment for keloid scarring, in the world.
Treating a keloid scar is an exact science and needs to be conducted by a highly-knowledgeable medical skin specialist or dermatologist. The use of some standard treatments or practices on skin that is prone to keloid scarring can, in fact make the situation worse. Here at our clinic in central London, we have extensively researched and chosen the most effective and safe treatments for keloid scarring that you will find.

How do I know which keloid removal treatment is best for me?
To know which of the above treatment/s would best suit your particular keloid scar condition, we will always invite you to a pre-treatment, no-obligation, initial consultation, so that one of our keloid treatment experts can assess the individual scar, check your medical history for contraindications to any particular method of treatment, and prescribe a course of bespoke procedures, tailored to your unique needs and requirements. After this initial meeting, you will be invited back to the clinic to begin your course of treatment.

When will I see the results of keloid removal?
This all depends on your individual skin concerns, the size of the scar and how raised above the skin’s surface it is. No two patients are the same and this is why an initial consultation is vital, so that we can explain how long to expect your course of treatment to be, how many treatments you will need and whether a combined course of treatments, using two or more methods may be necessary. You can then be confident in the knowledge that your end goal will be achievable in an estimated time frame.
Scarring doesn’t have to be something you must put up with. At the London Keloid Scar Clinic, we have the knowledge, expertise and the technology to reduce or even remove your keloid scarring in a professional and clinical environment.
