Hi and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and I am happy to help you today. there are several products, one I familiar with that provides some results is scar zone, you can read more about it HERE. Retin A, which is by prescription only, is also used for this purpose and is effective.

How bad do the scars have to be for scar zone? Does it work pretty quickly?

It can be used even for very tiny scars... it takes several ( about 4) weeks to make a significant difference.
