How do I make an old scar fade quicker? (photos)

This is a scar I got when I younger, 4-6 years ago. Technically, it was a scab first, then it peeled off and it healed to brown half circles.

There are many options with lasers, skin lightening creams, peels, and microneedling. I suggest consulting with a laser expert for further evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer

Melarase creams and Plato's Scar serum for dark scars

Our office specializes on dark scars. I would suggest a combination of light chemical peels, Melarase PM, and Plato's Scar Serum.
