Which treatment modality for keloids would have the least associated morbidity. Would you recommend bleomycin with multiple punctures?

There are a lot of people (me included) who no longer consider keloids as something that can be successfully treated surgically. If someone's interested in surgical keloid treatment they have to commit to XRT post-removal and agressive pressure treatment dressings. As insurance does not cover the XRT, most patients are limited to kenalog/celestone injections and silicone sheeting.
