Is this a hypertrophic scar or a keloid? What is the best treatment option for this? (Photo)

Hypertrophic Scarring -- Requires combination with pulsed dye laser/VBEAM, 5fu/steroid injections, fractional laser (Fraxel)
This requires a series of treatments to give improvement including: pulsed dye laser, VBEAM, 5fu/steroid injections, fractional laser (Fraxel). I suggest a formal consultation with a laser and scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
