Tiny Scar on Lips?

I have a scar, actually three small scars on my bottom lip, i believe my teeth caused it from sucking my lips..it is a bad habit that i adopted as a child an as an adult i still do it...the scars are noticeable and i always have to wear a pink tinted lip gloss or balm to try to disguise it, but sometimes i can still see it...what should i do?

Lip scars can be revised and improved with treatment

Lip scars are best excised and revised with layered skin closure to prevent further scarring.  I have used this technique with success.

What you are calling scars on your lower lip may just be normal glands and have nothing to do with your sucking your lips.  Please consult a dermatologist who can give you a diagnosis.
