its is very difficult to completely remove the scar. Surgical excision is also quite risky as it may further give rise to larger keloid. Lasers are benificial as they do flatten the keloids but several treatment session is required and is expensive. Silicone sheets or compression dressing may also help in reducing the keloids but result may vary from person to person. Cryotherapy may flatten the keloid but will leave a dark scar. Injection of corticosteroids and Interferon also reduces the size of keloids. Some doctors prefer surgical excision followed by corticosteroids and Fluorouracil injection or Radiation or lasers. None of the single treatment options are successful, so combination therapy might work wonder. So consult your doctor for further suggestions.

Keloid Treatments

Keloids can be very resistant to treatment. Treatment options can involve any of the following (and also involve combinations of the therapies listed below).

1. Steroid treatment - this usually requires multiple treatments. If the keloid is large enough this can leave excess skin after successful treatment. Steroid treatment can cause tissue atrophy and for african american skin or other darker skin types can also cause hypopigmentation.

2. Excision - While the mechanism for steroid formation is not fully understood wounds that have issues with contamination or infection may be at higher risk for keloid formation. Excising the keloid with a meticulous closure can effectively treat even keloids that have recurred.

3. Radiation - For extremely resistant or disfiguring keloids radiation therapy can be an effective mechanism to reduce recurrency rates in combination with surgical excision. I hope this helps.

I think Cortisone injections are safe of all and help to make flattened keloid.
