Dark scars can be improved with a combination of Melarase PM, Melapads, and Plato's Scar Serum to reduce melanin pigmentation.

Let's Try a Combination Approach

This won't be able to diminish your scar significantly. A combination approach would be best: Clear + Brilliant/Viva, microneedling/PRP, skin lightening/peels and aerolase can all help the scar's appearance. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
