Scar revision leg and exercise. How long would I need to refrain from cardio/weight training post op? (Photo)

I had an knee surgery 4 years ago, the scars aren't bad but I have read about Embrace Therapy silicone sheets and would like them revised to be as discreet as possible while using this product during the healing stage. I have one vertical scar on the inner side of the knee, two small incisions on the knee itself and an incision horizontally on the crease at the back of the knee. How long would I need to refrain from cardio/ weight training post op?

Scar on Body -- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2, Erbium), Microneedling/PRP, Peels, Skin Care, Medical Tattooing

Lasers, peels, microneedling/PRP can all help but nothing will get rid of this completely.  I suggest seeing an expert.  Sometimes medical tattooing is best.  Dr. Emer.
