Treating depressed or indented scars
There are various treatment options for indented scars. The options should be reviewed with your dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Your options include: laser resurfacing or dermabrasion, surgical excision/scar revision, or chemical &/or physical subcision. Another option would be injection of a filler under the scar to lift it out. Talk to your doctor about your best option as far as safety, effectiveness, and cost. If there are any colour issues, then a laser can be used as an adjunct.
