What Can Be Done to Get Rid of This Hypertrophic Scar and a Little Dent Left from Chicken Poxs? (photo)

They are both located on my forehead. I had to get stitches when I was a kid which left the scar and the scar from the chicken pox is also from childhood.

Both of these forehead scars will do well with surgical excision and layered closure of the scars. Laser options are not the established gold standard in this case.
