Our skin is prone to developing various deformities and irregularities after going through surgery or injury. When the skin heals, it sometimes forms a scar on the affected part. Usually, after an injury or accident, a scar develops on the skin, known as a keloid scar. Keloid scars are not harmful, but they do not reduce or vanish on their own. Moreover, if they start growing in size, they can become problematic. Keloid Removal Dubai helps eliminate such scars quickly and effectively.

What is a keloid scar?

A keloid scar or simply a keloid is a scar that develops on the skin due to recuperating wounds. Generally, it has a smooth top and a pink, purple, or brown shading. It is usually raised above the skin. Moreover, keloids can occur as a result of minor skin damage and keep spreading to the area beyond originally damaged skin. Thick tissue grows up and out from the mending region, making the scar larger than the first damage. Even a scratch can prompt keloids in some people.
