I had a mole removed - which resulted in a huge and unsightly keloid scar. Quite painful aren't they? I had it removed because it developed cancerous cells.

Before I had it removed I used a product called Terproline Professional. I highly recommend it and it isn't as painful as the injections.

Good luck Smile
