Mole removal. White scars.

I removed 2 flat moles. My dermatologist used heat to burn them. I got it done almost a year ago. Im left with 2 white "scars". How am I supposed to treat those scars now in order for them to disappear. Im using a cream called "madecassol" should i switch to a new one?

These white scars are usually permanent but can be improved with Kenalog IIT and fractional laser. Best is to avoid them.

All moles leave scars, and white scars are better than raised ones and these can be improved with fractional laser or medical tattooing.  Please see an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
