In brief: Yes

Depending on where your scars are and what they are from, there are many potential options for improving their appearance.
You should be evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist for more specific advice.

In brief: Yes

Depends on the symptoms.
The most common symptom is itching which can be treated with topical moisturizers or temporary use of mild steroid cream or tape if severe. Painful scars are best treated with desensitizing therapy such as massage.
