There are a variety of treatments available to improve scars. The key is that these techniques can improve most scars but nothing will completely erase or remove any evidence that a scar was there. If you want to post photos, I can provide less generic advice. You should also schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist who performs a high volume or scar treatments. I hope this information is helpful for you.
