In brief: No

A true keloid will only get worse with additional trauma such as cryotherapy.
Injection of medicines that dissolve scar tissue as well as inhibit its formation can sometimes be helpful. The option of surgical removal should be followed with several radiation treatments to help prevent recurrence.
