Here's What Will Help

You can try lasers (fraxels, pulsed dye, yellow) but I often find that medical tattooing is the best option. Please see an expert for treatment. Best, Dr. Emer

Making cutting scars better

These are usually permanent to some degree. I would consider Kenalog IIT, fractional laser, and ematrix RF to make it slightly better.
