Our office specializes in keloid scars in Los Angeles. Treatments may take a few months and include a combination regimen including IIT, laser, and topical therapy.  If you want a headstart, we recommend starting twice daily application of Plato's Scar Serum to the area prior to treatment.

Steroid then surgery

+1
The best approach is steroid injections over a 6 month period and then surgery with careful follow and injections during healing.    You should also try silicone aheets or bandaids now available in pharmacies.  You need this all out effort.  This is NOT an easy entity to correct.   My Best,  Dr C
