What is the best method to remove unsighty depressed scar because of laceration above cheek?
I had hit my head against the side of a desk about 10 years ago. At that time the cut was not stitched and it healed overtime like a normal wound. It left a scar but overtime it has lightened a lot. though whenever I smile, it creates a depressed/ indented surface.. can say kind of an ugly dimple about an inch an a half below my eye and an inch above where my actual dimples lie. Please guide me with your opinion on the best method in treating this laceration. I would be glad if there are any methods which do not scar the skin after the surgery or are painfree.
Looking forward to you response.
