Brief Answer:
intralesional triamcinolone followed by CO2 Laser resurfacing

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.

I have reviewed the images. They seem to be raised scars, probably firm to hard on palpation i.e keloid/hypertrophic scars. Hypertrophic/ keloid scars are commonly due to excess collagen deposition during the wound reparative process.

I would suggest intralesional injection ( i.e into the raised portion) with 40mg/ml of triamcinolone acetonide. This would flatten and improve cosmetic appearance of the scar by degrading excess collagen however no procedure can completely erase a scar, not even plastic surgery. Once the scar flattens you may opt gor a few sessions of fractional CO2 laser resurfacing to further improve the final cosmetic appearance.

You need to visit a dermatologist in your vicinity for the needful
