Keloids affect many people, they are more common in certain families and in particular ethnic groups such as Asians and people of African heritage. Typically people who have darker skin tend to be more prone to getting keloids. Keloids can be difficult to treat but there are several treatment options including surgery, injections with steroids or 5-FU, skin creams, and in some cases radiation. Often times Dr. Kpodzo uses a combination of these approaches to treat a keloid. Please schedule a consultation to see if you are a candidate for keloid treatment.
