Keloid scars on the chest and treatment

There are many options we have for keloid scars including lasers, VBeam, CO2 laser, surgery, and injections to reduce the volume and redness of a keloid scar.

Keloid on Chest

The best treatment for the chest keloid would be a combination of intralesional steroid injections and the V-Beam laser.  This combination, after several treatments, will improve this scar dramatically.  Please consult an expert with scar treatments. Best, Dr. Green
