Keloid Removal

Keloids are raised, thick, and often have a smooth or shiny surface. They can vary in color, ranging from pink to red or darker than the surrounding skin. Common areas for keloid formation include the chest, back, shoulders, and earlobes.

Star Dermatology treats keloids at our Coppell, TX office nearby Highland Village, Grapevine, Southlake, Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Bedford, Lewisville, Euless, Hurst, Cedar Hill, Addison, Colleyville, Desoto, The Colony, Double Oak, Irving, Flower Mound, Lancaster and Coppell.

Keloids can develop after any type of skin injury, including surgical incisions, acne scars, burns, or piercings.


  • Injection: Corticosteroids can be injected directly into the keloid to reduce inflammation and promote flattening. The goal for these injections is to flatten the keloid scar and reduce any itching or burning you may be experiencing.
  • Surgery: if our specialist determines that surgical removal would best, you can expect to be given a local anesthetic as our staff removes the keloid in the office. Surgery is often combined with other treatments to prevent regrowth.
