What is a Keloid Scar?

A keloid scar is a tough, raised scar caused by damage to the skin such as an injection. Keloid scars can often grow larger than the original wound, usually beginning as a red or purple colour before becoming brown, purple, or pale.

Keloids are irregularly shaped and tend to enlarge progressively, sometimes without warning. Unlike scars, keloids do not fade over time, meaning removal is the only option if you wish to eliminate it.

They may cause pain and discomfort, and even lead to restricted movement if the keloid scar is located on or near a joint. Often, keloid scars occur after the skin has been damaged or wounded, although they can appear without injury, trauma, or warning. Keloid scars can affect anyone, but they are more common in people with dark skin.

Keloid scars are commonly found in areas such as the:

  • Chest
  • Head
  • Neck
  • Earlobes

Keloid Scar Treatment

What does Keloid Scar Removal in London involve?

  1. Keloid scar removal is suitable for all skin types.
  2. It can be completed using a course of corticosteroid injections.
  3. A specially trained dermatologist will inject the steroid solution directly into the keloid scar, which will help to diminish its appearance.
  4. The steroids work by breaking down the bonds between collagen fibres, which helps to reduce the amount of scar tissue beneath the skin.

Keloid Scar Removal FAQs

Is the keloid scar removal painful?

Some individuals do feel some discomfort following their keloid scar removal in London. What is usually experienced is a slight stinging sensation when the injection is made. This procedure is quick and requires no downtime at all, so you are usually able to return to work, and resume all normal activities, straight after treatment.

How long does keloid scar removal take?

Steroid injections are a safe and effective keloid scar treatment in London and usually takes 15 – 30 minutes per session. Most keloid scar removal courses in London require around 6 to 8 sessions, depending on the size and location of the scar. It is best to book a consultation with one of our specialists to figure out what the average length of time will be for you.

How soon will I see results from keloid scar treatment?

With steroid keloid scar treatments, you should notice an improvement after your first treatment, however you will require several sessions to help the scar to flatten out and fade in colour. It is very unlikely that you won’t see results, but please get in touch on the occasion that the keloid scar does not diminish.

How long will the results of keloid scar removal last?

In most cases the results are permanent, however very occasionally keloid scars can return to the same area, in which case keloid scar treatment in London can be repeated. On the occasion that they do reappear, feel free to book another appointment with EFMEDISPA and we will do all that we can to help you with your keloid scar removal.

I'm completely thrilled with the result. I look, I think, subtly better and completely natural. Not years younger, but fresher, brighter and more cheerful. As promised, my jawline is tighter, my cheeks firmer, my brows more elegantly arched and even my thinning upper lip looks fuller and more upturned. Within a couple of weeks of living with my new face, it felt completely mine.

The fantastic team at the King’s Road clinic put my slight apprehension at immediate ease. They were professional, knowledgeable and provided a seamless approach to my treatment (Volite HA Boost), checking that I was comfortable throughout. Twenty minutes later and pleasing results were already visible… I’m looking forward to seeing further improvements!

The Zone Out treatment was fantastic, it relaxed my mind and body, clearing my head of all that “London” stress … Victoria, the Hydrotherapist was incredibly knowledgeable and informative; above all making me feel at ease …I can’t wait to come back again!

Zone Out Colonic Hydrotherapy

After having FemiLift, I don’t have the worrying sense of urgency to go to the toilet as much, I feel much more in control, this treatment has changed my life for the better. I am amazed how easy and comfortable the whole process has been.



I’m absolutely thrilled by the 3D SkinLift. Having two children took its toll leaving loose skin on my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Even from my first session with 3DSkinLift I could see noticeable difference and now after a full course I’m feeling like my old self again.
