Hello Mr. Sukhdev,
Thanks for writing in.
For the mark on your forehead, you can apply Adapalene 0.2% cream once daily at night. You should also speak with a dermatologist for procedures like a glycolic peel or microdermabrasion or Fraxel Laser. Since the scar is quite old, I think the procedures would be helpful for you in getting rid of the scar.
Hope this helps

Persisting scar on forehead:

No ointment or surgery would eliminate the scar.Plastic Surgery can help to make it look less conspicuous by doing scar revision or dermabrasion if required.Use sunscreen to reduce the pigmentation and consult a Plastic Surgeon.

Hi sukh

Scar can be made to subside that it is bare visible but if you expect it to vanish.. it is not possible.
Consult a plastic surgeon and explore option of scar revision surgery which might help more that the creams.

Hello, its better to consult your cosmetic surgeon for total removal of your scars. The treatment of the scars depend on its depth, length and color. if depth is less or not present than it can be cured by small procedure like skin peeling etc. or some ayurvedic medicine and creams.
