Scar revision in coronal sulcus area?

After an adult circumcision, I have been left with an unsightly scar between the corona and the shat, in the sulcus area, about 1 inch long. Presently, II would dearly like this to be revised. Should it be done by laser or scalpel, or maybe a corticosteroid injection ?, I am using Triamcinolone Ointment twice day on the area. The scar is about 5 years old. I am a Caucasian male, with fair skin. Surely something can be done, many thanks

Scar revision can be performed to ameliorate most scars. An examination would be the first starting point for a comprehensive scar protocol.
