I had a car accident in 2009 and it left me with a bad scar which I'm always ashamed of. Please I need to know if anything can be done. I need to get my real skin back.

Removing a large dark scar on the cheek
I would use a combination of non surgical means to lighten the pigmentation with Melarase cream. This would likely take about 6 to 12 months. In addition, you may consider undergoing staged surgical excision of the scar.
Scar on face after car accident
The only possible method that I can think of that might help with your scar would be to do something surgically. There are a variety of methods that could potentially be used, but basically, the scar needs to be surgically removed to improve the area. I would recommend seeing a plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
