Keloids After Piercings and Tattoos
Piercings and tattoos come with a number of inherent risks, including the development of keloids. Both piercing and tattooing result in injury and trauma to tissue. When the body detects an injury, mechanisms increase the production of collagen to protect the damaged site. For most people, the resultant scars calm down and fade with time. However, some will experience the development of raised, fibrous scars known as keloids.

Piercing & Tattoo Scar Revision

However, if scarring persists and begins to become more raised in appearance, it is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon. In order to increase the success rate of keloid removal, an individualized treatment plan is necessary.
