In brief: Many options

There are many different ways to try to improve the appearance of scars.
The best place to start is with a consultation with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can review the expected results with skin care, resurfacing procedures, injections or surgical techniques. Unfortunately this is often a difficult problem and you need to go in with the expectation of improvement, not perfection.

In brief: Improve, not remove.

Scars cannot be removed but there is a large variety of techniques to improve their appearance, both surgical and non-surgical.
They also improve with time. See a dermatologist or board-certified plastic surgeon to evaluate your options. Good luck!
