Scars can be treated with silicone sheets, cortisone injections, excision, intense pulsed light, needling, laser etc. No treatment is always an option because scars tend to improve with time. Treatment will depend on the patient, the operator, the type of scar and the cause of the scar. treatment is individualized
I suggest you see a dermatologist or skin specialist.
