Dear doctors, my brother had previously received a series of monthly steroid injections to keloid scars on his back. However, these were not effective. Immediately after the injection, they did subside for a couple of days, but then the scars got swollen and recurred to the original size. Thus we would like to know if there are any treatments beside steroid injection that would work for Keloids, and also the rough treatment cost. Thanks!

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Dear Lucus

Keloids present as red raised scars and are often treated with steroid injections to flatten these scars.

Combination treatment with the VBEAM laser and steroid injections can also be used and such combination treatments are found to be better at flattening and lightening these raised scars.

Usually 4-5 monthly treatments are advised and most patients will see excellent results. For some patients who are prone to recurrence, 3 monthly maintenance treatment may be required.

The cost depends on the number of scars we are treating, and can vary from $400-800 usually.

Hope this helps!

Warmest regards

Dr Stephanie Ho, Dermatologist
