I have a what my dermatologist calls a keloid scar on my neck, this was caused by an accidental, self-inflicted chemical burn. My scar has not grown beyond the border of the original scar, although it is raised. I have had 5 treatments of cortisone injections, and currently am treating redness with Tri-Luma cream. This has soften it a bit but it still remains raised and very reddish and sore looking. What can I do to improve its appearance? I am of Hispanic descent and have a medium complexion.

This inflamed keloid scar needs multimodality therapy, including IIT, pressure management, and laser treatment. I use a very strict protocol to minimize progression of keloids in my Los Angeles practice. Raffy Karamanoukian Surgery90210
