Hi, keloid treatments include: corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation, moisturizing oils to keep the tissue soft, using pressure or silicone gel pads after injury, freezing the tissue to kill skin cells, laser treatments to reduce scar tissue, radiation to shrink keloids Initially, your doctor will recommend less invasive treatments, such as applying silicone pads, pressure dressings, or injections. These treatments require frequent and careful application to prove effective. However, keloids tend to shrink and become flatter over time even without treatment... In the instance of very large keloids, surgical removal may be indicated. After removing the keloid, the scar tissue may grow back again, and sometimes it grows back larger than before...
