What Are the Latest Keloid Scar Prevention Measures?

I'm going in for surgery next month and I have a tendency to develop them. I'm African American and 27 years of age.

Treating the skin before and after surgery to prevent keloids

I specialize in keloid scars and place keloid prone patients on a pre and post surgical regimen that may include creams, IIT, and laser. 


In my opinion, the latest major advancement in keloid treatment is the pulsed dye laser.
