Depressed scar on forehead due to plastic surgery fixing an existing scar. Any suggestions? (photos)

Hi- what is the best and longest lasting scar filler for my forehead. I've used a filler that began with a B; however, it only lasted a few months before it started to depress again. Please help!

Facial scarring is best treated with a combination approach which can include lasers, fillers, peels, subcision, and skin care. I frequently use Bellafill to treat depressed scarring. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Fillers for depressed scars

Scar revision should utilize a long-lasting filler. I use silicone (Silikon 1000) and Bellafill. Both are long-lasting and will give a wonderful correction. You may need some ablative laser or manual derm abrasion to get the best correction. Re-excision is always an option, but you have already had that once. Try the fillers I mentioned above, for a satisfying correction.

Thank you for sharing your question and photograph.  I would recommend using a thicker hyaluronic acid filler, such as Juvederm, to help fill this forehead depression as it will tend to last longer than Belotero.  Hope this helps.
