It is difficult to permanently treat keloids, as cutting out a keloid can result in a larger scar and therefore a larger keloid forming. The aim of treatment is usually to flatten the scar or alleviate symptoms of itch or pain rather than to completely eradicate it.
There is no single treatment for keloids, and most treatments do not give completely satisfying results. Two or more treatments may be combined. If you decide to pursue treatment for a keloid scar, you will have the best results if you start treatment soon after the keloid appears. This is an alternative to conventional surgery for keloid removal.
Dual-pulsed Q-switched Nd: YAG Laser - The Spectra XT extended platform by Lutronic is a new laser peel device that offers three different wavelength settings. This can reduce the height and fade the color of a keloid. It’s often used along with another treatment like a series of corticosteroid injections or pressure.
