Besides massage, how can I get rid of scar tissue where they made the arthroscopic incisions on my ankle four months ago? Any cream or supplement?

In brief: Tincture of time

Scars take 6-24 months to heal while tissue reorganizes and remodels.
Keeping a wound moist and taking the tension off of the wound edges is helpful initially. No cream or supplements have ever been shown to SCIENTIFICALLY make any difference.
