Keloid Scars and Treatment
You will most likely need a combination of V-Beam laser and cortisone injections to make the scar disappear. I also recommend Kelo-cote which you can purchase over the counter. Best, Dr. Green
Thanks for your question. There will be plenty of options for helping this scar. It just depends on how far out you are from the injury. If it's still within a few weeks of the injury, steroid injections can be helpful to thin out the scar. You can also massage it which will help shrink it. If that doesn't do it, simply removing the scarred area and sewing it with stitches should work well- you're trading a ball of scar for a surgical scar that will heal better. As far as the cost, health insurance may cover it depending on your policy. Good luck!
