How much does it cost to have a small keloid removed so that it should re-occur, what is the best method for such small keloids?

Doctor Answers 2

Keloid Scar Solutions -- Fraxel, 5fu/steroids, pulsed dye/vbeam/yellow laser

Cost will vary and may require a series of treatments. Injectable steroids with or without 5-FU and microneedling/prp, lasers are all great options. I recommend a formal evaluation with a scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

Keloid removal

Keloid removal is an office based procedure under local anesthesia. Fees will vary based on the surgeon.  For recurrent keloids, a post op course of therapeutic radiology may be beneficial and should be coordinated with the surgeon.
