What Can I Do to Fade my Self Harm Scars? (photo)

I have large self-harm scars on my shoulders. I have them on my wrist as well, but these bother me more. Other than bio-oil or anything is there any way to fade them? Or I should say, a faster way to turn them white?

Pulsed dye scar laser for arm self-harm scars

I would start therapy with pulsed dye scar laser followed by fractional co2 skin resurfacing of the scars.
