Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Thank you for using JustAnswer.

If these are relatively new marks and scars, they will become less prominent with further healing. If they are red and inflamed, then using hydrocortisone cream will typically help ease the inflammation.

If these are older scars that persist in being bothersome, then the usual approach is to perform laser resurfacing or dermabrasion to help with the scarring.
