Keloids are exaggerated scars caused by excessive growth of scar cells called fibroblasts. They can be caused by surgery, piercings, acne, tattoos, and any injury or inflammation of the skin. A genetic susceptibility seems to also be an important factor. Keloids are much more common on the chest, shoulders, upper back and arms, and earlobes.

Keloid scars can also itch and be painful. Keloid scar treatments include intralesional steroid injections and pulsed dye laser treatments that can often help flatten the scars. Some keloid scars do not respond to any type of treatment. Earlobe keloids can be removed surgically and followed up with injections. Keloid scars can improve with topical silicone gel sheeting (NewGel + Gel Strips or NewGel + Gel Dots).

Can keloids be removed by laser treatment?

Keloid scar treatments include intralesional steroid injections and pulsed dye laser treatments that can often help flatten the scars. Some keloid scars do not respond to any type of treatment. Earlobe keloids can be removed surgically and followed up with injections.

Can keloids be removed permanently?

One way to treat keloids is to remove them surgically, but because most people with keloids continue to be prone to abnormal scarring, a keloid may grow back in the same place after the surgery. Surgical removal is often more effective if combined with a nonsurgical treatment.
