What is the best treatment for hypertrophic or keloid scars? (photo)

I had surgery to remove an infected sebaceous cyst on my chest last June. Would you suggest doing a scar revision surgery and then steroid injections after? I want to know the best treatment (and its cost) to make it less noticeable or even disappear. Thanks!

This can be improved with a series of lasers and injections.  I suggest you see an expert for an evaluation.  Best, Dr. Emer.
