We Are A Keloid Removal Centre

Published on: January 30, 2020

You might be surprised to learn that The London Cosmetic Clinic is a keloid removal centre. It’s something we’re incredibly proud of – as our keloid removal procedures have helped many of our clients regain confidence in their appearance.

In this blog post, we want to explain how our keloid removal procedures work – and most importantly, how you can get the treatment process started.

What Are Keloids?

Keloids are benign growths of scar tissue which commonly happens at ear, chest, shoulders and abdomen. At our clinic, ear keloid removal is one of our most successes and common treatments. There are a variety of reasons why they form, including skin type (4 – 6 are more prone to keloids), family history or infections.

Unfortunately, keloids can form into large lumps or nodules, which many patients find unsightly and painful to touch. We grade the severity of a keloid by measuring its size, pain and firmness.

How Does Keloid Removal Work?

There are a variety of methods to remove keloids, including:

  • Shave Removal: We can remove keloids through the direct excision of the growth (stitches applied afterwards), or by using our Hyfrecator Machine (which shaves the keloid while stopping bleeding).
  • Steroid Injections: Injecting steroids into a keloid can help to flatten the growth and prevent it from increasing in size. Here at The London Cosmetic Clinic, we use Triamcinolone Acetonide to treat keloids. The steroid will be injected into the wound immensely after keloid removal. When the wound heal, a course of five steroid injection is advised to prevent the keloid growing back.
  • Pressure Earrings: After keloid removal, using pressure earrings can help prevent keloid scar tissue from growing back.

Often, a combination of these methods will be used to produce the best results and minimise the chances of keloids reoccurring.

Getting Started

Prior to a keloid removal procedure, you’ll need to have a consultation with a member of our team. During this consultation, we’ll discuss your medical history and treatment expectations.

Should you be a suitable candidate for a keloid removal procedure, we’ll then formulate a bespoke treatment plan for your needs.

Recovery Time & Cost

Patients may experience slight discomfort after the procedure. However, most patients do not need to take painkillers. Three weeks after a procedure, patients are required to attend a review appointment.

Our keloid removal procedures start from £550.
