How do I remove a year old flat iron burn? Is this still possible?

I accidentally left my flat iron on my bed while I did my make up, I completely forgot I left it there, and I jumped onto my bed where my flat iron was. Now I have to lines on my upper thigh and its taken me a year to finally take action. Hope I'm not too late

This can be improved with lasers, microneedling, peels, and skin care. I suggest using skin protection and avoiding sun exposure to this area. Please see an expert for treatment. Best, Dr. Emer
