Best Scar Removal Treatment for Leg Scar?

I have a noticeable scar approx. 5x3 cm on my right leg (in between my knees and foot) 23 years ago. What would be the best scar removal treatment can you advise, and to what specialized doctor should I go?

Old white scar on leg is hard to treat

Unfortunately this is a difficult problem to treat, and no laser will "remove" the scar. If it is still red, a pulsed dye laser will help reduce redness usually. If it is white, it is harder to treat. A series of Fraxel laser treatments may help, but this is difficult.
