What Treatments Are There for Ingrown Hair Scars on Breasts?

I am currently having laser hair removal around my nipples but up till now I have been plucking the hairs which caused some ingrown hairs. A couple got infected and i picked them which has caused a scar which goes in slightly and is about 7mm in width. Is there any treatment for this sort of scar? Thank you in advance.

If these are fresh scars and less than nine months to one year old they will improve simply with the passage of time
