Raised scars respond to lasers and injections
In my practice we typically start with injections of 5-fluorouracil and kenalog with or without Vbeam pulsed dye laser. Later a resurfacing laser such as Fraxel restore or repair can be used to improve the scar.
Dealing with a raised Nose piercing Scar
A scar cannot be magically erased. Once you have a scar the best we can hope for is revise the scar hoping to get a flatter, less obvious scar. The cost would vary significantly based on where you live from as low as 500 to 2,000 dollars.
