Fractional lasers and Plato's Scar Serum

For dark scars, use a combination of Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase PM twice daily. Follow with fractional lasers that do not damage the skin.

Thank you for your question and photograph and I am sorry to hear of your injury.  I would recommend investing in a good sunblock that contains titanium or zinc as an active ingredient in order to minimize the dark coloration as well as a lightening cream such as hydroquinone to help reduce the darkness already present. Be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation.
