The scars  will fade with time. It can take a year or more for the color to lighten.  ................

Improving Dark Scars--lasers, microneedling/prp, skin lightening, peels, skin care, sun protection

These spots can be improved with a combination of lasers, Aerolase, microneedling/prp, skin lightening, peels, and skin care. Sun protection is essential. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with an acne scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Scar management

Scars from liposuction can be treated in several different manners.    Massage and sunscreen are the first treatments.   Silicone sheeting can also help.   If the scars fail to lighten, then BBL (broad band light) can be used to help with any pigment irregularities.   Good luck on your continued recovery.
