How to Get Rid of White Scar on Neck?

I have an insicion scar from a lymph node biopsy 2 years ago. It's now a white indent on the left side of my neck. It also has white marks where the stitches were. What scar removal options do I have for this? Help!

Scar treatment on the neck

For atrophic scarring on neck, torso or extremities, you may want to consider bio-stimulatory fillers such as Radiesse or Sculptra by an experienced injector. White stitch marks can be improved with topical retinoid, glycolic acid and/or Fractional CO2 laser at a conservative setting for the neck, preferably by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who has performed more than 50 cases on the neck.
