How To Actually Get Rid Of A Keloid — According To A Dermatologist
Remember: This
is not a pimple, so please don’t pop it like one. Since it’s not actually acne, there’s nothing to
squeeze out of the bump. In fact, doing so could potentially cause an infection, which is much worse than some overgrown scar tissue. Instead, Dr. Marmur suggests several different removal methods for keloids, including non-invasive surgery that can remove the growth. Unfortunately, even with this method, there’s a possibility the keloid will return. In that case, Dr. Marmur suggests an alternative option: low-dose steroid injections that can shrink the overproduction of collagen in the area that triggered the keloid to form in the first place.
