Re: removing traces
Liberty, I've no personal experience with scar removal but if your scars are relatively shallow you can use a scar cream (or perhaps even tanning lotion) to dye the skin a consistent color. The easiest solution for most scars is to simply hide them. Also some scars can be covered with tattooing (but really, I wonder 'why bother covering one art form with another?').
For deeper scarification there are various cosmetic surgeries such as laser removal of the scar's collagen and skin grafting. The simplest keloid scar treatment I'm aware of is for the doc to simply excise the scar tissue and stitch the wound back shut. Ask your physician or dermatologist for more information.
