Will laser surgery help reduce the appearance of my toe scars? If not, what other options do I have? (photos)

I had hammertoe and corn removal surgery on both feet about 5 years ago. The scars from the surgery still linger and I am extremely self conscious about them. On the right foot 2nd toe, the scar is depressed close to the toe and is noticeable in various angles. I've tried makeup, skin lightening creams. Will laser surgery help my toe scars? What are my options if any? Please help!! I am desperate.

Start with our Hidef regimen which includes Plato's Scar Serum, Melarase PM, and fractional lasers to blend out the scar.
