ABC7’s The More in the Morning team spoke with Dr. Michael K. Kim about what Keloids are and some emerging treatments that help remove them.
A keloid is a scar from a piercing, surgery, or even a pimple that can continue to grow. This condition is most often seen in people with darker skin, but it can happen to anyone.
If you think you have a keloid, see a plastic surgeon as soon as possible. There are several treatment options:
- Pressure therapy
- Silicone sheeting
- Laser therapy
