Cryotherapy hasa long been utilized in keloid treatment with moderate success. In fact, most dermatologists use it routinely when performing steroid injections since it decreases some of the pain of the injection.
The one drawback is that melanocytes are very sensitive to freezing. Thus, administering cryotherapy in dark-skinned people should be approached cautiously.
