We actually treat many of these scars. I would begin with application of Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase PM creams to help reduce the pigmentation and scarring.

Apple cider vinegar won't do much to improve the appearance of this scar. Fractional lasers can give you improvement with a series of treatments, along with microneedling/PRP and proper skin care to improve complexion and prevent hyperpigmentation.  I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist who is a specialist in skin care, lasers, and scars.  Best, Dr. Emer.
