• Injecting Steroids [I'm not in favor of this I'm impatient]
• Compressing Them [She didn't suggest that because they just come back]
• Cutting them out [She also didn't suggest that because she said Keloids are formed from unhealed skin or whatever and cutting them out would just make them bigger]
I was thinking if laser treatment would be possible for Keloids? or other Suggestions. I'm going to call another Hospital tomorrow and set up an appointment with another dermatologist (this is in a bigger city I live in the country) so I'm hoping he will be better or have more options for me.

To be honest I can understand that keloids are ugly but if you have removed a keloid and keloids are formed from excessive overgrowth of collagen. When you get tattoos, to heal from a tattoo may cause keloid development again. I would strongly recommend not getting a tattoo. Btw, just a correctio,n skin needling will make keloids worst because you are causing more collagen to be created.
Laser treatments do not help either because it stimulates collagen growth and keloids are formed from excessive collagen growth. Instead it makes it worst.
just a question, but are your keloids painful and itchy, if not, it's just hypertrophic and it will heal in some time (max 2 years)

I appreciate what the other guy said (Ceebs) but ive had keloids on my back and chest for like 2 years now and i decided enough was enough and got them tattoo's over. I've got tattoos on my arms too and to be honest there wasn't much difference getting these done than anytime before. Yeh the chest hurt a lot more but thats because its the chest. Single handedly the most painful experience of my life.
Anyway. They're covered, ive never been happier and in my experience they havn't got any bigger. They haven't got any smaller mind you but that was never going to happen.
Also i didn't rush to this decision. I had Steroid injections many times and it didnt help.
If you got any questions man just PM.
Take it easy.
