I've been to several different doctors, for my nasolabial folds, all recommended a different product; Radiesse or Juvederm. My folds are very superficial, but I am prone to forming keloids, should I even take the chance?
Can I Use Dermal Fillers if I'm Prone to Keloids?

Keloid scarring is not a complication typically associated with Injectable Filler treatments.
Keloid scars are thick, raised, irritated scars that are usually associated with a surgical incision or a traumatic laceration. The ear is the most common body-part to form a keloid, and keloids are more common in patients with darker skin-types.
Although keloids can form from ear-piercings, I am not aware of keloid formation after a brief needle puncture.
I hope this is helpful for you.
