Scar revision may be a good option to improve the deep indented scar on your forehead.  Scars can be excised and resutured to improve results.

It looks like part of that laceration either opened after repair or you lost a small amount of tissue due to the injury. With this type of mature scar the best option is typically a scar revision during which the old scar is removed and replaced with a finer surgical scar.
