Raised and thick scars on the back and chest can be treated with judicious IIT plus pulsed dye laser and fractional co2 laser to resurface the skin and reduce redness.  This strategy will achieve great results.

Sorry for your experience. Best to be seen in person by a boarded PSs in your city to be evaluated for scar revision or injections of steroids to scars.
