Just like some of the post stated, it takes time. My PS told me it could take up to a year for a scar to completely fade to what it will always look like. But there are some factors that make scars more visible.
If you are medium to dark skinned, they will show a lot more, and won't turn white. If anything they will get a bit lighter.
If you tan a lot, you should avoid it, or try to cover them as much as you can, if not the tanning will make them darker.
I have a very thin scar, and I am actually impressed, Ive had scars on my legs look worse. lol.... Its going to take time, and its just up to your body. Eventually it should start to be lighter and less noticeable. Good luck.
