NOOOOOO DON'T DO IT
This was the worst treatment I've ever gone forward with. SO many regrets from it. The lousy derm didn't even inform me of any side effects. I got 8 injections, it was scary and so painful in every way. A month later I was left with a huge dent in my check, like a crater. Months later the same dents are showing up in every place that was injected. SO terrible.

Pros:

flattening of raised keloid scars

Cons:

red/pink pigmentation, if too much steroid is injected it may cause the skin to sink and leave a scar, resulting skin is extremely thin/tender, some may experience slight pain during the injection

it's worth it if you plan on using other treatment later (like laser, etc.) to take care of the pigmentation. this worked really well for me, especially since my insurance wouldn't cover any dermatological treatments, so cost was very important for me. I went for three total treatments (each $50) over a course of three months
