In brief: Scar treatment
Scar creams are anecdotally successful & may work early on-silicone based creams or sheets probably work best.
If you don't see improvement by 2 months it likely won't change the scar, although scars continue to improve & soften for up to a year. Most treatment to improve the appearance of scars like this use special technology to remodel the skin such as fractional laser treatments.
