Scar On Leg After Fall, How Treat?

Scars are permanent, nothing can ever get rid of them completely.  However, fractional laser technology is quite useful even in old, white or pigmented scars.  I would consider seeing a cosmetic dermatologist with expertise in lasers.  It will take many treatments and likely only get a little better, but may be less noticeable which could make you happy.  See someone who performs many treatments and knows how to treat scars with pigmentation.  I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
