Fat grafting and lasers after keloid treatment

Use Plato's Scar serum followed by fractional lasers to improve texture and skin tone. Some patients require fat grafting to improve contour. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles

Keloids/Scar -- Fraxel, 5fu/steroids, pulsed dye/vbeam/yellow laser, microneedling/PRP, surgical removal

Keloids are difficult to treat.  Injections, lasers, and surgery and be used to improve scars.  I suggest a formal consultation.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Keloids and lasers

Redness can be treated with a vascular laser such as a PULSE DYE laser. You may require a few treatments. This laser often can stimulate normal collagen to reduce the dent. Failing that, fillers or fat transfer can correct the dent. Most often dents self correct unless there is fat atrophy. Don't use a skin roller, it may cause your keloid to come back. All the best,Dr  Davin Lim
