Scar "removal" is not possible by any technique

There is no surgery, laser, or cream that can "remove" scars.  They can be massaged, lightened with IPL treatments, and revised surgically to make them less visible sometimes, but they will always be ther unfortunately.

NO Scar cream is capable of erasing a Scar

A scar is permanent. It cannot be erased by any medical or surgical modality. The best we could do in some cases is make the scar less conspicuous. Regardless of the price on the tube, NONE of the scar creams on the market can magically erase your scar.
