I am having similar problems with a keloid scar from 7 years ago. The sheets never helped me. How are your results?

I have been using a Non Ablative fractional laser on some keloid, hypertrophic and surgical scarring. I am having excellent results. You do,however, have to treat the keloid scar conservatively and test spots are a must before treatment. I have seen a softening and flattening of these scars with the Non Ablative laser. Skin types I-IV.

yes thats what this doctor say he was going to do, he was place strips on scar after the surgery then after awhile as it would close he put stitches in saying he would institch.but scar is painful at times its still very tender and it is very noticeable...i just want it to be flatened and given something that will take down itching and swelling when it gets irritated.another question,is it so tender because its still healing or will it always feel like this?

Keloids are a hard thing to improve. Invariably they always come back to some extent. Steroid injections are helpful after scar excision. During my fellowship training in Louisiana, I had a lot of experience with Keloids / large scars / hypertrophic scars. One thing we did there is take them out and let them heal secondarily or open without closing them and creating additional tension. That seemed to help that population a lot of times. This is something you should ask your doctor about. There is scientific basis to how that helps the healing. I did some extensive research on this. Thanks for reading, Dr Y
