      @bahramuuu I had some laser. It didn't hurt. Once my Dr made a mistake and I got a burn that formed into a big blister. So it's good, but there are other things to consider.

      I had used mederma gel in the past. Was considering laser at one point for my super raised scars, but decided against it. After using Mederma on my hip scars I did get it tattooed over (an image). I know some tattoo artists do tattooing that hides the scar that matches your skin tone (basically permanent concealer), but it’s a pretty specialized thing that someone has to know what they are doing. If you are getting them tattooed at all, make sure you go to an artist that is knowledgeable on that subject.

        @Ajr thanks! Yeah I think I'll continue with bio oil from now on.

Some suggestions for healing scars include using BioOil, Vaseline, Mederma gel, and scar creams to speed up the healing process. Exfoliating in the shower can also help with the color of the scars. For deep scars, treatments like chemical peels and laser have been suggested. Natural remedies such as tea tree oil, black seed oil, and aloe have been recommended for keloid scars. Some people have also integrated their scars into tattoos.
