How Do You Treat a Slightly Depressed Scar on the Face?

A scar that is slightly depressed looks like a dent on the face. If a doctor was going to put a dermal filler under it would that cause it to look lumpy?

Treating depressed surgical scars with fractional co2 and Melaquin

Depressed scars on the face should be treated with subcision and scar revision treatments with fractional co2 laser and surgical excision.  Subcision is a highly encouraging treatment that can help with the most devastating scars.
