Hi CJ, thank you for the question.

Keloid treatment is difficult and your best approach would be to consult with a dermatologist who can examine the keloid and give you the best treatment options.
Some improvement has been achieved with needling, injecting steroid directly into the keloid, and even fractional laser resurfacing, but ultimately one may have to consider surgical excision and repair.
