Talk to Dermatologis: You should consult with a dermatologist. There are many techniques that can be used to remove scarring: steroid injections, cryotherapy, laser therapy, radiotherapy and others. Surgery is typically a last resort. Each of these procedures will cost different amounts based on how extensive and deep the scar is.
