Can Scar Revision Work on Eyebrow Piercing Scar?

The piercing on my eyebrow didn't heal well, so I took it out and let it close. What's left is an indentation about a quarter inch below my eye. Can a scar revision work on this problem?

Depending on the direction and depth of the scar, a minor scar revision would probably disguise the scar you currently have. By excising or reorientating the scar, you trade your old scar for new one that is more acceptable. Other options may include focal skin resurfacing.
