Hi Tasha, thank you for the question.
The concern with threading would be that it may cause an acne like eruption following the inflammatory process and the renewed hair growth; typically acne is caused by overproduction of the sebum found in skin pores and hair follicles rather than just the hair follicles. So your better approach would be to consider laser hair removal and some form of maintenance program to reduce the production of the sebum and bacteria production – such as glycolic acid peels and topical products containing no oil but with added alphahydroxy and polyhydroxy acids.
The scars may be difficult to treat and the best approach would be to consult a cosmetic dermatologist who can examine the scars and decide on the best treatment for you. Please submit a new question and let me know in which city you live in so I can refer you to the appropriate dermatologist.
