Keloids are often associated with inflammation.  I use the following non-surgical treatments for keloids:

  1. Pulsed Dye Scar Laser
  2. Selective IIT
  3. Pressure Treatment

Keloid scars and the chest are best managed with a combination or costisone injections combined with laser treatmenst.  This type of scar is the worst of the worst.  Persistent treatments with laser and cortisone injections every three weeks achieves the best results in my hands.  We treat hundreds of keloid scars on an ongoing basis.  They are sometimes very tough!
