Hypertrophic scars on the body
I would use a combination of Plato's Scar Serum, IIT, and lasers to help reduce the thickness and color of your scars.

Embrace Active Scar Defense
After a scar revision, it is important for patients to begin a scar therapy to ensure the best aesthetic outcome. Many patients benefit from using Embrace Active Scar Defense as it is the only product indicated by the FDA for hypertrophic and keloid scarring. Embrace works by relieving scar tension, which is the second most important factor in scar development. Treatment with Embrace is usually started 1-2 weeks after surgery once an incision is closed and continued for 8 weeks. Some patients use Embrace for longer if they are more prone to bad scarring. Once treatment with Embrace is complete, transitioning to a silicone scar gel is often recommended. It is important to consult your board-certified plastic surgeon regarding his or her scar therapy protocol for you. Good luck!
