Scars on the chest. How can I get rid of this?

I have irregular pale scars start from the left hand side of my chest ( nipple to the top of my abdominal) going around to the beginning of my back. This is really preventing me from doing a lot of things in life due to hiding it away and not being able to take top off due to embarrassment etc. How can I reduce/get rid of this?

Hello dear,
Thanks for the query.

Two treatment options are available.

1. Application of tretinoin cream. This gives some benefit but takes very long time.
2. Lasers. these give a good result but are costly and will require multiple sittings.

You will have to decide among the above.
Thank you.
