A keloid scar is a type of scar that is most commonly found in darker-skinned people but may be seen in all skin types. It appears as a fibrous, dense scar tissue that usually extends far beyond the borders of the initial injury or area of trauma. Keloids may be pink, red, brown and come in many shapes and sizes. What sets keloids apart from other scars (ex: hypertrophic) is that the size of the scar is out of proportion to the initial injury. Although challenging, keloids may be treated with lasers for good improvement.
