Keloid & Hyperthrophic scar treatment
The London Keloid Clinic, Harley Street, has a very high success rate of treating keloid & hypertrophic scars. Keloids are elevated fibrous scars that extend beyond the borders of the original wound and do not regress. Hypertrophic scars are similar, but are confined to the wound borders and usually regress over time. Scar hypertrophy usually appears within a month of injury, whereas keloids may take three months or even years to develop
The common causes of keloids are either genetic, because of a wound infection or around the location of a wound. Keloids commonly appear around wounds on the chest, shoulders, jaw lines, mid line of stomach and ears. Some keloids can form after a couple of years after ear piercing. Keloidd can happen in all skin types although commonly in dark skin. Many keloid patients have a family history of keloids.
