Best Scar Removal for Liposuction Scars?

I had liposuction twice and have quite a few scars. The last doctor did not want to use the old incision spots, he said he couldn't lipo as good if he used it there, so in total i have SIX scars below my waist. These scars are not raised but very pigmented. What is the best scar treatment for this? I have tried silicone and bleaching cream none which helped. I am looking into laser treatment, but don't know which one is the best for dark liposuction scars. IPL? Fraxel? Any other ones? Thanks!

Time is your best friend and the scars should fade within one year. i do not find the bleaching creams or lasers to be very effective

It is very difficult to comment without photos and more information, including the age of the scars. Generally, liposuction scars are very small and should not produce noticeable change in coloration. A recommendation for treatment would require consultation. Silicone gel and bleaching creams each have their own purposes, which aren't necessarily the same.
