I had a microdermabrasion done on my nose. I wanted one scar removed. Nurse unfortunately went further and left me with another scar, 1x1 in diameter, maybe 1 mm high. It has a shiny texture and stands out from rest of the skin on the nose. Will it fade over time? Or should I aplly some creams,etc.? Please, it left me depressed, I do not want to have it on my skin anymore :(. She scarred me 2 months ago.

Dark scars can be improved with Melarase creams, whereas textural scars may need laser skin resurfacing.

How to Treat Raised Scars on the Face
Slightly raised scars, called hypertrophic scars, will often gradually improve with time. To increase your chances of a good result, as well as to help shrink scar tissue, there are two products with which we have had a good deal of success: RejuvaSil® and Scar Esthetique®. Products that contain Silicone gel have been shown to be effective at shrinking scars and RejuvaSil® has several effective ingredients in addition to liquid silicone that shrinks keloids, hypertrophic cars, surgical scars, traumatic scars and burns.
