Flat and disclored scars: Will they fade or can they be removed?

Fractional Medical Microneedle Therapy Can Help Fade Hyperpigmented Scars
While there is a chance of spontaneous fading going forward, two and a half years is a long time, and suggests that if any fading does occur at all, it will continue to be a slow process with little likelihood of total loss of the excess pigmentation.
A series of superficial chemical peels combined with at-home use of prescription fading creams is one option for treatment. I have personally found fractional medical microneedle therapy combined with prescription fading preparations, used both at home and combined with the microneedling therapy to yield more consistently gratifying results.
