How old is your scar?
Did you try any topical medicines?
What is your age?
Scarring occur when the deep dermis layer of skin is damaged. The deeper the damage, the worse the scar.Once a scar forms, it is permanent. However, it may be made less visible or displaced surgically.There is no way to remove scars completely. However, a skilled surgeon
can definitely improve the appearance of the scar by disguising it, relocating it, or minimizing its prominence. Skin colour and type, age, and the size of the scar, are important factors that go on to decide the outcome of a surgery to remove a scar.Timing of the surgery is another important factor. The younger the scar, the more satisfactory is the result of the surgery.Some facial scars can be softened using a technique called dermabrasion, that leaves a smoother surface to the skin, but does not completely erase the scar.Steroid injections,Z-Plasty ,Skin grafting are the other modern plastic surgery treatments.You may also try some home remedies like vit E oil,Cocoa butter,Mixture of lemon and cucumber,Cod liver oil,Aloe vera gel etc locally..
