Dear Scarred Beauty: 

Plato's Medicinals Dark Scar Corrector is excellent in reducing hyperpigmented damage to the skin. See the link below.

This type of scar is very difficult to remove. I would NOT recommend surgery or lasers. I would consider a series of chemical peels and an agent that contains hydroquinone.  A consultation with a qualified dermatologist will definitely be helpful for you.
