How Can I Remove an 8 Year Old Scar From Upper Lip?

8 years ago, I felt something "strange" on my upper lip. Best I can describe it is that it felt like a cold sore (though, I've never had one). I saw my upper lip bubbling near where a cold sore would form. After 2 minutes, it went away and a verticle indentation scar formed (I guess it's an internal scar?). It feels like there is no "fat" or "muscle" there. It's an indented, an inch long verticle. What could have caused this? How to I repair this? Is dermalimaging/diagnostics avail?
