Keloid scar can occur as a result of injury to the dermis.  Tattoos and piercing can incite keloid scars and thickened scars as a result of an injury to the dermis of the skin.  The extent of dermal injury during tattooing and piercing can lead to variable risk of keloid formation.  Keloid scars can also occur as a result of inflammation and infection on the skin incites an inflammatory response and subsequent keloid formation.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a world leader in the management of keloid scars and can help you determine the proper course of action in the earlier or late phase of keloid growth.
