Which option or medicine should I use for the scars on my legs? (photos)

Would like to know how I can get rid of these scars.

The best option is a combination for brown leg scars--lasers and peels

A combination approach is needed. This can be improved with pulsed dye or yellow laser in combination with clear + brilliant/fraxel and peels. I recommend getting a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer

Thank you for posting your question. There are many options for treating dark spots. Hydroquinone bleaching cream can help lightening them. IPL intensive pulse light treatments can also help lightening scars and making them less noticeable. As of now, I recommend putting on sunscreen and avoiding sunlight exposure to reduce further hyperpigmentation. Best of luck.
