Once there is scarring it can be difficult to reverse, however there are a number of modalities that a dermatologist may be able to utilise to remove, or at least reduce the scarring. This can be expensive however, and is not generally covered in the public system. You would need a referral from your GP to see a dermatologist.

For mild scarring you may apply a solution of 3 different essential oils combined: Tea tree, Lemon oil and lavender oil, all diluted in a jojoba oil base. Apply in the morning only everyday. For example for 100 mls of Jojoba oil add 3 mls of the essential oils blend.
For moderate and severe scarring you might need some laser treatment to remove the scars plus the previous measure aforementioned.
