Thanks for writing to us.
The decision of not doing a Primary Subcuticular Catgut sutures surgically is the reason for an unsightly scar in any injury.In the history you have not mentioned the size and depth of injury and what exactly caused the same.
Proper approximation during suturing after injury by a trained doctor and that too on the face will definitely prevent any scar formation.
You have two options now.(A) Consult a Dermatologist
for any possible laser therapy
possibility to reduce scarring .(B) Consult a Plastic/Reconstructive Surgeon to consider autologous skin grafting
or secondary suturing under anaesthesia.
The above two are definitive procedures with good prognosis.
Other things that can be tried are pealing agents such as Glycolic Acid/Isotretinoin
creams/Human placenta extract Gel such as Placentrex
. But the results may not be 100% satisfactory.
Wishing you a quick recovery.,
