White scars are difficult to treat. We have found that fractional co2 laser may be an excellent option for these scars in terms of texture and color.

Try Derma rollers at 2 mm depth with PRP(platelet rich plasma) infusion. Fee $1,000. And could be a few sessions.

Neither of the products you mention will have any positive effect on your scar.  If you use a  topical retinoid cream over a period of time (6 months - a year)  the texture will improve. The use of daily sun protection with physical sunblock is also recommended.
