Typically when a wound heals, it signals the end of the repair process. Unfortunately, sometimes this stop signal, which tells the body that the healing process is over, is missing or defective. This leads to the proliferation of healing cells, which presents as “excessive healing”. This is seen in one of two ways:

  • Hypertrophic Scar 
  • Keloid

Thus keloids are scars which have overgrown and often continue to overgrow the original wound size. Keloids are a problem, specific to coloured skin. Typically the darker your skin tone is, the greater are the chances of your scars turning into a keloid. Any wound, be it injury, burns or post-surgery scars can become hypertrophic or keloids.

Typical symptoms of Keloids

  • Raised and Thicker Scar
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Hypersensitive to touch (sometimes even against clothes touching/brushing against it)


  • Post-surgical scars
  • Post-CABG-Sternal (most common scar)
  • Ear lobe
  • Scar on chest, abdomen, shoulder, back, hips
  • Post-vaccination Scar
  • Post pimple (acne) Scar-chest, face 
  • Post-burns scar
  • Any of the symptoms if unbearable or unacceptable

Treatment Options

We will assess the gamut of the problem and choose from the following treatment line best suited for you.

  • Corticosteroids injections into the keloid
  • Silicone gel sheets
  • Pressure garments
  • Laser treatment
  • Cryo therapy – Freezing the scar
  • Surgery to remove the scar. Less than 5 % of patients are considered for surgical removal due to the extremely high recurrence rate.

Inpatient/Outpatient Procedure

It is an outpatient procedure.

  • Complete recovery in 20-30 minutes.

Keloids have a nasty tendency of coming back (high recurrence rate). Hence, even after successful completion of treatment follow-up sessions are often mandatory. People with keloids are some of our most satisfied clients.
