I use the pulsed dye laser for hypertrophic scar redness as it works very well for scars.

Hyperpigmentation in scars

There are lightening creams for hyperpigmentation of scars. Skinceuticals carries a product called Phyto + and is very good for this. This does generally take a period of time for the lightening to occur, so one must be patient and diligent with application.
