Arm lift scars can be fixed

I would start with a combination of Plato's Scar Serum + Melarase PM creams followed by fractional laser, PLLA, and Kenalog IIT.

TriLuma is not likely to help. A scar revision is likely to give the best result. See a plastic surgeon for an evaluation. See link below for examples.
