  • Size

Are you left without answers in search of a quick and lasting solution? Then there is no better place to go than our expert clinic.

What are Keloid Scars?

Keloids are scars that have continued to grow, becoming raised and large. The moment any infection or incision in the body occurs, the body starts to create collagen to heal the injury. Unfortunately, keloids occur when the body doesn’t stop forming collagen at the spot of the injury, creating a raised and unattractive mass. While these scar formations happen in any part of the body, they most commonly occur on:

  • Shoulders
  • Ear lobes
  • Breastbone area

Chicago keloid removal experts at Kovak Cosmetic Center offer treatments to those who need these growths removed, repairing any deformity caused to the body. Keloids are unique to each patient and, depending on the specific condition, can be treated using different methods ranging from steroid injections to surgical removal. Our expert services allow the affected body area to be restored to its once stunning form.

What Causes Keloid Scars?

Unfortunately, the primary cause of keloids is not known. However, the suspected problem is caused by abnormalities in cell proliferation. This means the process of healing is not stopped normally. In this case, the scar tissue builds, leading to unsightly and large scars. Other causes may include:

  • Hormonal factors
  • Genetic factors
  • Accelerated growth during puberty
  • Pregnancy

During your consultation, our team will review your family history and current medical condition to understand what may be causing your unwanted scars. Selecting the right course of action can only be determined by a professional; therefore, contact our clinic today.

What Scar Treatments are Available in Chicago?

Every scar is distinctive and requires detailed consideration from a surgeon who is highly skilled. With that said, below are a few of the most common procedures Kovak Cosmetic Center uses to remove scars and restore their smooth, clear, and healthy skin:

Laser Skin Resurfacing

This effective remedy can be used on virtually any scar, especially Keloids. It works by removing your injured skin one layer at a time, ultimately eliminating the blemish and displaying your smooth and clear complexion underneath. At our clinic, we provide a variety of different laser skin resurfacing therapies. We will determine the best treatment to attack your unique condition effectively.


Microdermabrasion is a gentle but effective treatment involving using a unique tool with rough edges to remove the damaged outer layers caused by keloids. The process creates tiny wounds your body naturally heals by producing new collagen, generating new, undamaged skin to grow and dramatically improving the appearance of the scar.

Steroid Injections

Various injections can be used to remove the keloid scars and reproduce naturally looking skin. These injections are ideal for those who want to avoid surgical remedies at all costs. Patients receive fast and affordable results that do not take away from their daily schedule with long recovery times.
