How Long Will It Take for my Facial Scar to Fade?

I had a scar revision a year ago. The scar is still indented and red. Will it ever become unindented and how long will it take to fade. The scar is over my lip. Thank you.

If you have an indented lip scar and no swelling, you may require reexcision and layered closure. The redness can be treated with Pulsed Dye Scar Laser.
