Hi Demi, thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with my response.
This is a difficult question to answer over the net as one would ideally like to examine the ‘scar’ before deciding on what the best treatment options are. If you are referring to pigmentation changes then it may be best to use hydroquinone (4%) mixed in with the NeoStrata but you will need to get a prescription (ask the dermi you saw). If the pigmentation is very deep one may have to consider fractional skin resurfacing to reduce the appearance of the dark area. Your best option would be to see the dermatologist again and ask for further possible treatments.
