Keloid Removal San Antonio
Dr. Davis and his staff have a long experience in treating many kinds of scars, including keloid removal in San Antonio, and options for treating them continue to grow.
Overview of Keloids
Keloids are typically pink, puffy scars that can be quite large and always extend well beyond the original footprint of the surgery or injury that caused them. They can form after skin surgery, big or small; burns, cuts, skin piercings, tattoos, and skin infection like chickenpox. But they are can also appear spontaneously, without a discernible wound or other factor that can be found.
More than a simple bump, keloids can be a big burden for people who have them. Some keloids are painful or itchy; some are very large and can disfigure or deform the part of the body on which they are located.
While anyone can get a keloid scar, there are families in whom they are more common. Fortunately, dermatologists have a growing array of ways to reduce or even eliminate keloids.

Does Insurance Cover Keloid Removals?
Insurance sometimes covers the cost depending on the case. We can go over the specifics during your consultation.
Do You See Private-Pay Patients for Keloid Removals?
Yes. We are happy to see patients without insurance and we charge them what insurance companies normally “allow”. So, if you’re a cash patient, you are not penalized by paying a retail rate far above what we expect to receive from a health insurance plan.
