Looking for African American laser scar removal advice. (photo)

About 4 years ago I got a pimple or bite which turned into a keloid that I'm super unhappy with. I got a steroid shot a few years ago which flattened it a little but since then I got two more bite turned scar marks and I want to know is laser the best way to treat since they are a little raised.

Hypertrophic scarring should be treated in a combination approach with lasers along with steroid/5fu injections. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
