Accidents, injuries, and surgical incisions may leave lasting marks on your skin, resulting in the formation of scars and keloids due to trauma. These reminders can persist, impacting both your physical appearance and emotional well-being. However, you can significantly reduce the visibility of keloids and scars with skilled dermatological care. Feinstein Dermatology, situated in the heart of the Delray Beach, FL community, is committed to providing comprehensive scar and keloid treatment options to restore confidence and comfort in your own skin.

Following an injury, your skin may develop raised, red-colored nodules, known as keloids. Keloids result from your skin cells and connective tissues multiplying rapidly to heal your body. Symptoms associated with keloids include itchiness, pain, and uneven pigmentation.


Scars can sometimes look quite similar to keloids, with a red or pink tone and a slightly raised texture. Unlike keloids, scars never grow beyond the bounds of the original skin injury. While many scars fade with time, they may never disappear entirely.

Treatment Options

Our approach goes beyond conventional dermatological care, from cutting-edge procedures to advanced topical treatments. Among the array of options, laser therapy stands out as a popular choice for reducing the appearance of keloids and scars. However, depending on the specific circumstances, your treatment plan might incorporate cryotherapy, surgical excision, or steroid shots for optimal results. For certain types of scars, chemical peels may also reduce their prominence effectively.

Keloid and Scars FAQs

A scar is a mark left on the skin after a wound or injury has healed. It may vary in appearance depending on factors such as the depth of the injury and skin type. A keloid, on the other hand, is an overgrowth of scar tissue that extends beyond the boundaries of the original wound. Keloids are raised, thickened scars that can be itchy, painful, and cosmetically bothersome.

Keloids and scars can result from various factors, including injury, surgery, acne, burns, vaccinations, piercings, and genetic predisposition. Keloids tend to occur more frequently in individuals with darker skin tones and may develop spontaneously or in response to minor trauma.

Keloids and scars are typically permanent, but their appearance may improve with treatment. While some treatments can help flatten, soften, or fade keloids and scars, complete removal may not always be achievable. It’s essential to manage expectations and consult with our dermatologist to determine the most suitable treatment approach for individual cases.

Scars can manifest in various forms, including flat, raised, depressed, or textured. Common types of scars include hypertrophic scars, keloids, atrophic scars (such as those resulting from acne or chickenpox), and contracture scars (which may occur after burns). Each type of scar may require different treatment approaches for optimal management.
