Reducing a dark, raised scar on brown skin? (Photo)

I have a 2 year old, iron burn scar. The scar is raised and very noticable. I have tried many creams, but cannot seem to find anything that works. I've done a lot of research, but I need a suggestion of products or methods that may work for darker skin. My goal is to fade the scar as much as possible. Thanks!

This can be improved with lasers and lightening creams. I suggest you see an expert for a formal evaluation.  Best, Dr. Emer.

I would recommend a combination of Plato's Scar Serum, Melarase PM, and IIT to help reduce your scars and smooth them down. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles
