Keloids are a unique type of scar that is raised from the skin and typically darker in color. Texas Dermatology offers keloid treatment for children, teenagers and adults in San Antonio, Kenedy, New Braunfels, and other areas of Texas.
What is Keloid Treatment?
Keloid treatment removes raised scars from the skin. A keloid may develop months after you injure your skin and may continue to expand. Keloids are indications that your body is creating too much scar tissue, and this process is what causes the raised appearance and unusual coloration. Anyone can have a keloid, but we see it most often in patients with darker skin.
How Much Does Keloid Treatment Cost?
Keloid removal is tailored to the needs of the patient, and the cost does vary. After your consultation, we can give you an estimate of your treatment. Financing through CareCredit® may be available for your keloid treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Keloid Treatment?
Keloids are innocuous and do not require medical treatment. Patients choose to have keloid removal for cosmetic reasons.
