Keloids form when a wound or condition, such as acne, does not heal as it should. A keloid is a large mass of tissue that forms as an abnormal body response and may become much larger than the original wound or injury. Keloids can often be irritating and unsightly and are often difficult to remove as they tend to reform.
Keloids are most common on areas that have a fatty layer below, such as on the face, earlobes, neck, back, and chest. They can also be found on the belly, such as a C-section scar, as well as other areas. With the correct combination of removal and management techniques, keloid scars can be removed, and their reappearance can be slowed or halted.
