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 consultation. Best, Dr. Emer

Keloid laser and surgery for your scalp keloid

Our office specializes in keloid treatments. I would consider debulking enucleation, IIT, and laser therapy for your keloids.
