Best treatment for scar on the tip of the nose? (photo)

Had an icepick scar on the nasal tip for many years. Got adviced to have a revision done and went for the surgery 4 months ago. Unfortunately I ended up with a bigger and still depressed scar. Is there any treatment that will level the scar with the surrounding skin?

This atrophic scar on the nose can improve with subcision and fractional co2 laser. Surgical scar revision is less of an option.
