What are


Keloids are raised, thickened areas of scar tissue that form at the site of a wound, injury, or surgical incision. Unlike normal scars, which tend to fade and flatten over time, keloids continue to grow and can become larger than the original injury. They often appear shiny, smooth, and dome-shaped, with a color that can vary from pink to red or dark brown, depending on a person's skin tone. Keloids can be itchy, painful, or tender to the touch, and they may interfere with movement if they develop near joints.The exact cause of keloid formation is not fully understood but is thought to involve an overproduction of collagen during the healing process. Keloids are more common in people with a genetic predisposition to scar formation and are more frequently seen in individuals with darker skin tones. While keloids are typically harmless, they can be a cosmetic concern and may cause discomfort or itchiness.

Treatment Options


Once we have diagnosed your keloids, we will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. There are several treatment options available for keloids, and we will recommend the best approach based on the size, location, and severity of your keloids.

Corticosteroid injections: This is the most common treatment for keloids. We inject a small amount of corticosteroid medication into the keloid, which can reduce inflammation and flatten the keloid over time. This treatment is often combined with other therapies for the best results.

: This treatment involves freezing the keloid with liquid nitrogen to reduce its size and thickness. Cryotherapy can be an effective treatment for smaller keloids, but it may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.

Surgical Excision: In some cases, we may recommend surgical excision to remove the keloid. During the procedure, we cut out the keloid and close the wound with sutures. This treatment is often combined with corticosteroid injections to prevent the keloid from returning.

Laser Therapy: Laser therapy involves using a special laser to remove the top layer of skin and flatten the keloid. This treatment is often combined with other therapies for the best results.

Radiation Therapy: Radiation therapy is sometimes used in combination with other treatments to prevent keloids from returning after surgery or other treatments. This therapy involves using low doses of radiation to reduce the risk of keloid recurrence.

During your initial consultation, our dermatologists will perform a thorough examination to diagnose keloids. We will assess the size, location, and appearance of the keloids, as well as any underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to their formation.

In some cases, we may need to perform a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. This involves taking a small sample of the keloid tissue and sending it to a lab for testing.

I’ve struggled with eczema all my life and the various amounts of creams/ointments given to me by other places never helped enough. Dr.Patel is the only dermatologist I have met that explained everything to me clearly so I understood my issue clearly and gave me other options. My hands have never looked so clear in my life. Super happy with his service and his whole office is very nice/professional. Highly recommend!

Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable and helpful. First time I went in he spotted my problem just by looking and immediately assigned me treatment. After following his regiment for a couple of months, it has completely healed. He also was able to check several other areas and prescribed medications for those areas. I highly recommend.

I started suffering from hormonal acne last October and visited many different dermatologists to find a sustainable solution. Dr. Patel is the only doctor who was committed to healing my skin. He saw me every 2 weeks to monitor my treatment and had effectively cleared my skin since I began seeing him in February! I am extremely grateful for him and his entire practice.

I am very happy I found Dr. Patel he knew right away my hair loss issue, diagnosed it and began the treatment regiment. He is so knowledgeable and takes good care of you. I’ve seen rapid results in just 2 visits.The front desk staff are courteous and professional as well, and the wait times are very minimal. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Patel for your all your skin concerns, you won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Patel is amazing. Not only is he great, but he will resolve any issues presented to him. I first came to see him for some skin tags and moles I wanted to remove, which he did. Also, I brought in my mother who was suffering from furuncle … something i’ve never heard from, but Dr. Patel recommended some medicine and my mom skin has cleared up 100%. I love his extreme intelligence and ambition to help with any dermatology issue. I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to anyone dealing with any skin issue.
