Is it possible to get rid of keloid scars? How do you prevent them from occurring again?
Keloid scars are not easily managed and there are literally hundreds of scientific studies and articles dedicated exclusively to the treatment of keloids. The fact that there are several options available to treat keloids is testimony to the fact that no one treatment is better than any other. I have found, however, that pre treating the keloid scar with intralesional steroid injections on two separate occasions starting 2 months prior to keloid removal, followed by postoperative steroid injections has been quite helpful in preventing the recurrence of keloids.
