Thank you for posting your question. The best treatment plan really depends on the depth, size, and location of the scars. A combination of techniques may yield the best result. Excision procedures can remove the round scars and leave linear marks that are less noticeable. Microneedling and fillers can also even out depressed scars. I would recommend that you meet with an experienced, board certified physician for in-person consultation to determine the best treatment plan for your condition.
