Can a facial indented scar be improved?

Denver Facial Plastic Surgeon
Treatment Options for Facial Scars
We typically advise patients to wait up to a year before having a scar revision procedure. Depending on the individual nature of the scar, a board certified plastic surgeon could recommend a specific treatment protocol for you.
Scar revision surgery is one of the most common procedures used to improve the appearance of a scar. We recommend that following scar revision surgery, patients use a topical, silicone based scar gel, and complete a series of Laser Genesis (1064 Nd: YAG laser, Cutera) treatments that are designed to help with collagen reorganization.
Best of luck!
