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.
