Which one between the Palomar 1540 and Co2 lasers is better for improving self harm scars?

and is it true that for 3 years old blade scars (hypertrophic, raised, white) no cream or gel can be effective?

Scars on Arm -- Fraxel/Microneedling/Skinfinity/VIVA, Sculptra/Fat/Bellafill, Subcision, Pulsed Dye Laser; Medical Tattooing

With this type of scarring, gels or creams won't make much improvement. I suggest seeing an expert.  Lasers, fillers and microneedling can help.  Best, Dr. Emer.
