What is a Keloid?
A keloid scar simply means your skin has suffered a wound. This is most often caused by an injury or through surgery. There are tissues in your body called fibrous tissue. These tissues are also known as scar tissues and they will form scars right over a wound. Sometimes an excess in scarring tissue develops and causes a hard growth which results is severe scarring. This growth is referred to as a keloid and can be a lot bigger than the original injury.
A keloid is a type of tumor but it is not malignant. They are considered chronic and most often will form right after surgery. There are other causes for these tumors including burns, piercing your ears, chickenpox and injuries to your skin. Unfortunately Asians, Latinos and African Americans can be genetically prone to the forming of keloid tissues.
Keloids do have certain symptoms and they are listed below.
- Scar tissue that keeps growing as time passes
- A patch of skin that continually itches
- A bump that is red or pink on color
- An area of skin that is ridged or lumpy in appearance

Keloid removal with the SRT-100TM has a success rate that is over 90%. Previously, removing keloids did require surgery but the problem was that the keloids often grew back.
