If scar is big and: And unsightly then a surgical revision would be the best option. Less of a scar can become better with time. Some mds give retinal a ointment to help.

Laser Scar Removal: Using the latest laser technology, the beam of the laser penetrates the pores of the skin, smoothing the deep layers of the skin and improving the skin tone. Unless viewed under the microscope, the miniscule penetration of the laser is not visible to the naked eye. For this reason, there is a very short recovery time, results are immediate, and the skin will heal in a matter of 1 to 3 days.

OTC creams or Doctor: If new and fairly small, ask your pharacist to recommend an OTC cream. They work well. But if not new or large, consult w/ a dermatologist - even a scar specialist to discuss possibilities. Best wishes!
