keloid and pit scarring, do lasers work?

hi, i have keloid and pit scarring on my back, was wondering if anyone knew if laser resurfacing is a viable option or if even microdermabrasion would work?
thanks, C

Don't get laser surgery on Keloid. It will only aggrevate the already ****** off skin tissue and may cause it to form higher and denser elevations.

Dermabrasion would be a similarly bad idea.

Get them excised, then go on a course of steroid injections.
