Keloids are raised overgrowths of scar tissue that occur when skin has been injured such as with skin trauma, surgery, vaccinations, acne or body piercings. Some people are prone to keloid formation and may develop them in several places.Treatments offered by dermatologists to flatten the appearance of keloids include injection of steroid medications into the scar tissue and cryotherapy (freezing with liquid nitrogen).
