In brief: Depends...

...On the size, location, and complexity of the keloid.
Small ones can take 10 minutes; large complicated ones can take an hour or more.

In brief: Keloids

Injections are usually given once per month until the maximum benefit is obtained.
Injections are safe (very little steroid gets into the bloodstream) and usually help flatten keloids; however, steroid injections can also make the flattened keloid redder by stimulating the formation of more superficial blood vessels.
