Hi, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
It usually depends upon type & duration of scar; recent scar respond better. Please try Hexilak gel 3 times a day locally for 2 months & let me know the results.
Good luck.

it depends on which tyoe of scar you have. silicone sheets or gels are helpful only in hypertrophic scars and that too not to a great extent.
you may try using retino A 0.025% cream once daily at night and have a personal consultation with a dermatologoist or a plastic surgeon regarding surgical management of the scar. you may also send me your pics for a better advice.
