In brief: Improve not remove

Many options exist for cosmetic improvement and include anti-inflammatories, peels, exfoliation, lasers, resurfacing, bleaching, excision, grafting, fillers, and much more, scars vary in their severity and so do the treatments.
See a plastic surgeon, dermatologist or ENT for options.

depends on if they are atrophic and depressed or hypertrophic and raised. For depressed scars, subcision and filler or fat grafting or punch excision of depressed apex prior to LASER resurfacing can provide the best cosmetic result. Raised scars may need steroid injection and excision and then resurfacing with dermabrasion or LASER.
