How Can I Remove Scars on Chin and Neck from Shaving and Plucking?

I have scars on my chin and neck from plucking and shaving ( I am african american). Is there a way to remove the scarring on my neck and chin? I have completed a series of laser hair removal, and I am very satisfied with the results.

Darkened scars can occur as a result of folliculitis and plucking of ingrown hairs.  I would recommend Melaquin AM and Melaquin PM, followed by a chemical peel such as MelaPeel.
