How to treat self harm scars that are keloid and thickened? (photos)

I had a rough trot in my teenaged years and I unfortunately took it out on my arms which I thoroughly regret now. I really hate having these terrible scars that let everyone know i once was hurting. I haven't struggled with this for years now but the marks of my past are so obvious it creates a bad first impression in my life. Im a totally different person now. I understand nothing will fix it perfectly but want to know the best options

These scars are permanent, but can be improved with fractional lasers, ematrix RF, Plato's Scar Serum, IIT, and surgical scar revision.
