Does this look like a keloid scar? Will cortisone injections work? (photos)

Hypertrophic scar or keloid - Vbeam, CO2RE and steroid injections
The typical patient wanting scar therapy on keloids or hypertrophic scars starts with CO2RE laser and/or Vbeam laser depending on their skin type (color.) In addition, microneedling is a great option. Multiple treatments are usually required and injections can be done intermittently as needed. Our new Sublative Fractional RF handpiece is also a great option with very little downtime.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
