What can I do to remove the dark spots from my leg ? Is there any effective treatment I could purchase at a local store? (photo)

Some of the scars have cleared up. But I would like to know how to immediately get rid of them.

Dark Scars

Post traumatic hyperpigmentation is very difficult to treat. It wouldn't hurt to try the Melapads but don't expect immediate resolution. Lasers to remove pigment may be counter productive and make the pigment worse.
