Medications – Injecting steroids on the scar tissue will help it in getting shrinked in size. At time doctors inject collagen too which smoothens the scars caused by chicken pox or pimples. But these are not permanent solutions, so you may need to visit the doctor again.

Surgery – A burn scar can be only removed with the help of skin grafting, and laser treatments and dermabrasion can help further to remove the scar tissue. But for a less severe scarring, a microdermabrasion treatment smoothes the skin’s surface giving a clear skin.
Other treatments – For discolored scars, doctors generally suggest chemical peeling or skin bleaching which will lighten the scars. It also improves the skin’s texture, so that it can blend in well with the surrounding areas of the skin.
