Hi Rohit

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

The cut mark on your face could be a scar that developed due to injury.Scars can be removed by surgical procedure though other means are not so effective in old scars.
I advise you to visit a Plastic surgeon and after careful examination the procedure needed to be opted and the extent of scar removable can be discussed.You can search for a Plastic surgeon in our Experts list near your location.

Take care.

Hi!Rohit,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Rohit , treatment depends upon the type of the scar.If it is depressed scar then you have two basic option : one is LASER & the other is FILLER .You may require couple of sessions of laser to improve your scar.It may not give you 100% result ,but definetly a good improvement .In fact I should tell you that no procedure can give you 100% result.In fillers ,we use injections of collagen to fill up the depressed skin.But this would be temporary result ,as it desolves in 6-8 months time ,and you would require a second shot again.
If the scar is raised then you can go for steroid injection over the lesion to soften it .
You can also go for the surgical excession (if there is no keloidal tendency) .But surgical excession would again lead to a linear scar (may be a bit better looking),as one needs to suture the scar again .
A laser (co2 laser or a pulse dye laser ) can also be used to depress a raised scar .
Some times a combination treatment is required.

You should consult a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist who have facilities of different lasers in their clinic.
If you can tell me where you belong to then probably I can suggest you a good clinic.

regards,
Dr.chawda
