Thanks for writing to us.
The indentation in your thigh is likely to be due to a local fibrosis due to an old injury in the area. If the area is painless and there are no skin color changes then it is likely to be due to a benign cause and will heal on its own without any treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
