What are realistic expectations for scar revision? (Photo)

Researching the effectiveness of scar revision has caused me to be unsure of how trustworthy the pictures shown are. How effective it's shown to be in images such as the one attached are very hard to believe. Is it really likely for scar revision to be that effective?

Surgical scar revision can work well

Surgical scar revision, lasers, and topical therapy can work well to improve a scar.
