There are a number of treatments that can improve the scar, most are laser based.  If it is simply a dark pigmentation, then IPL, a non invasive laser and several other similar pigmentary lasers would improve it.  If there is scar tissue (a ropy look) than an ablative laser like the ACtiv FX fractional CO2 laser would improve it.
