Hello,
Thanks for the query,
Scars cannot be removed by use of benzoyl peroxide or retin a.
You need to use a skin lightening cream like melalite xl.
You will get relief with this.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
Thank you

Hello,
Yes melalite xl is actually a skin peeling agent,
It will slightly peel your skin and hence help in removal of scar.
Remember to apply a sunscreen in morning.

Thank you
