I live in Orlando, FL and I have a keloid on my earlobe thats not that big. How much do the steroid injections cost?
Cost of Keloid Scar Injection with Kenalog
The Cost of Keloid Scar Injection with Kenalog ranges from $75 for smaller scars to several hundred dollars for scars expanding over larger surface areas. Once scars are made smoother, softer, using fractional laser resurfacing devices may further improve their appearance.
Steroid Injections for Keloid Removal Cost
Kenalog injections to treat keloids can be effective. The charge will vary across the country, and typically are $100 to a couple of hundred. Depending on your insurance, it also may be a reimbursable procedure.
Health Insurance Covers This Procedure
If you have health insurance, many times this is a covered service. Silicone sheeting, Scar Guard and massage can all be beneficial. The key is to begin treatment as soon as possible after the keloid has formed. After 18 months, nothing works great. If the keloids are very large or recurrent, I will resect them and have the patient get radiation therapy immediately after the surgical excision. I would advise you see a board certified dermatologist in your area.

Scar Revision and Keloid Treatment
Keloid scars can be improved with Kenalog injection. The cost of Kenalog injection depends on the volume of medicine used and the concentration of Kenalog. It can vary from $50 dollars to as much as several hundred dollars per injection. The most important factor that you should be aware of is that one injection of Kenalog rarely eradicates a scar.
