These can be flattened with mild steroids, as well as fractional lasers, however you will need some HQ, as they will darken with treatments (lasers). This type of scarring is difficult to treat, as you will require many sessions, and pigmentation will fade- usually over 12-15 months. All the best, Dr Davin Lim . Brisbane. Australia.

In my opinion, the gold standard for treating pink raised scars is the pulsed Dye Laser. I would combine the laser with injections of cortisone as well as 5 fluorouracil. Ablative and non-ablative Laser have also shown to be effective with these type of scars. Recently micro-needling has gotten a lot of attention for treating raised scars. A combination approach is usually preferred. Find an acne scar expert. Good luck
Treating hypertrophic scars
I would treat with Excel V and Infini. Topicals would also be helpful such as Retin A and hydroquinone. I think these are hypertrophic and not keloid scars. Laser resurfacing such as Fraxel can also be done.
