Keloids on the belly button

Keloids on the belly button can be improved with application of Plato's Scar Serum, massage, IIT, and laser therapy.

Hypertrophic Scar/Keloid -- Pulsed Dye Laser/VBeam, 5fu/steroids, Fraxel/Viva, CO2, Aerolase

I would suggest an in person consultation with an expert for evaluation. Hypertrophic scarring should be treated in a combination approach with lasers along with steroid/5fu injections. Unfortunately cost cannot be determined without an in person evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
