I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist with experience in treating darker skin types. You can do a combination of skin care, lasers, and peels. Best, Dr. Emer.

Dark scars from garlic burn

Dark scars on the forehead can be improved with Melarase AM and Melarase PM, light chemical peels, and fractional laser.
