Heidelberg Dermatology
40 YEARS OF SKIN CARE EXCELLENCE AND INNOVATION
Even though we continue to offer telemedicine for appropriate patients Heidelberg Dermatology regrets the need to interrupt services due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. However, all our patients will be rescheduled as soon as it is safe to resume our operations. In the meantime, everyone here wishes all our patients well as we confront this challenge.

Keloids

A keloid is an abnormal growth of scar tissue that forms at a site of injury. Unlike a normal scar, keloids grow beyond the boundaries of the original scar. They are benign and they have no malignant potential. Studies have consistently demonstrated that people with darker pigmentation are more likely to develop keloids. Keloids can be treated; options include occlusive dressings, compression, steroid injections, radiation, laser, surgery and various topical medications. Individual patients will be evaluated and a specific treatment plan will be determined.
