Scar Removal

Unfortunately these are longstanding scars with hyperpigmentation. They are tough to improve. A trial with laser treatment in one area will give you a better idea if improvement is possible.

Treatment of dark foot and leg scars with creams

Hyperpigmented scars are treated effectively with Melaquin AM and Melaquin PM, followed by a series of MelaPeel treatments.

Scar treatment

I agree with Dr. Bakshandeh.  Older scars with hyperpigmentation are difficult to treatment and a test spot with a profractional laser would be highly recommended to see if you can fade the scar.
