In brief: Improve NOT remove

It is possible to improve scars but nearly impossible to remove scars.
This requires an assessment of thickness, width, depth, color, texture, location, direction, behavior, adjacent/adherent tissues etc. Depending on the evaluation, an apporopriate intervention(s) is prescribed or recommended. Techniques used may inlcude excision, incision, flap/graft, rearrangement, resurfacing, laser, etc.
