Keloid removal: Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions or shiny, fibrous nodules, which occur at an injury or scar site. It is a result of an overgrowth of granulation tissue (collagen type 3) at the site of a healed skin injury which is then slowly replaced by collagen type 1. Keloids can be successfully removed by a dermatologist via corticosteroid shots, cryotherapy, laser therapy or pressure treatment.
