I have 20-year-old cut scar on my face. I had it when I was 5 years old and it is 6 cm. long. Is there any treatment for it?

A scar on the face may be able to be revised. Sometimes if the scar is in an unfavorable orientation, it can be manipulated throughtsurgical means to re-orient it more favorably. If the scar is red it may be able to be lasers. However, scars are permanent.
