I don't think there is anything that can be done quickly to fade scars, but there are a few things you can try.

It is thought that applying lemon juice to your scars helps. Apply it, let it dry, and then remove it three times a day. This one could be difficult because it needs to be done often.

You can mix baking soda and vitamin E oil into a scrub and you can apply that to your scars. You can get vitamin E oil from capsules, or you can look for a small bottle of it at the pharmacy.

You can also exfoliate your scars (especially if they are newer) and apply a lotion such as one that has aloe in it.

I believe cocoa butter is supposed to be good for scars as well.

You can try a tube of scar cream from the pharmacy, but that will take a while.

Maybe you can cover them if you can't get them to fade.

If you just recently cut cover it in petroleum jelly and a band aid. Heals it over night.
