In December i burnt my self on the forehead with a cigarette. it has healed and there is only a red mark smack dab on my forehead. it really lowers my self esteem and is quite embarrasing. will it eventually fade? i have been using a scar roller every day and Bio Oil. should i use something else or is it time to see a doctor for further results.
As 3 months have now elapsed, perhaps it would be prudent to consult with a facial plastic surgeon to evaluate the situation. There may be several options to help minimize the visibility of the scar. Please consult with a board certified specialist who can assist you in achieving the results you seek.

Lasers for scar reduction
I would recommend seeing a dermatologist with advanced training in lasers. There are a variety of approaches that can improve the appearance of this scar and you should seek a consultation so that the best laser and appropriate amount of downtime can be planned for. Good luck.
