Correction of dark scars on the legs
I would start with Melarase creams and Plato's Scar Serum, followed by light chemical peels and fractional laser.
In addition to skin lightening creams, you should get a venous Duplex scan to determine if you have venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency, or pooling of venous blood, predisposes patients to hyperpigmentation after injury. If untreated, this can progress to lipodermatosclerosis, which may be irreversible. Look at pictures of lipodermatosclerosis on my website. Also, read my ebook about venous insufficiency on the link below.

What can be done to heal and lighten my skin back?
Thank you for your question and photograph. Your leg is demonstrating postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, or PIH. This can be improved initially with Aquaphor ointment to control the flaking skin and itching. Once this has resolved I would advise lightening creams and chemical peels to improve its appearance. Hope this helps
A combination of skin lightening creams and mild chemical peels can help you with this delicate area. Please consult a specialist. Best, Dr. Green
