What is the range of surgery and or treatment options to have my scar removed. What kind of surgery and/or treatment is there available to rectify a scar located between my knee and ankle on the front of my leg? Creams/Gels applied for several months have not improved the scar. I would like to learn of all the options to remove it completely. If it can not be removed completely, how much improvement can be expected? Thanks!

Hello, a chemical peel should help lighten the scar. You may need between 3-6 sessions for the peel to be effective. Surgery would not be a viable option due to the location of the scar and it may just cause a larger scar. I would suggest continuing using the creams/gels and giving them more time to work. Good luck.
