In brief: Scars

There is nothing that will get "rid" of scars.
There are treatments that can make them less noticeable. For example if they are red in color then lazier treaents can reduce the redness. If they are hypertrophic than steroid injections may help. If they are keloid than excision with radiation treaents may be beneficial. You should see a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist for an opinio.
