What can I do?

Laser and injections can help scars

Depending on the size and depth of your scar, there may be several non-surgical ways to improve it. One is with use of injections of either kenalog or kenalog with 5 fluorouracil. Also these injections can be used in combination with laser treatments such as the pulsed dye laser or fractional laser (fractional erbium or CO2).

Scar tissue in the upper lip

Obviously you need a good physical exam and a proper history. What is the etiology of your problem. Sometimes it could be as simple as doing a small excision of the tissue.
