Thanks for your question. From your photo this appears to be a hypertrophic scar though I can't be sure there is not a stromal as well. In all likelihood you would do best with a fractional resurfacing procedure (ex. Laser skin resurfacing) ****BUT**** you have a darker skin type so BEFORE you pursue any heat based (laser) procedure or a deep peel you MUST precondition your skin for a minimum of 6 weeks with several tropicals ( retinol, retina A, hydroqinone) OR you will run a high risk of Hypopigmentation (white spots) which can be permanent or Hyperpigmentation will can be difficult to treat.
