Deep facial scars
That is one deep (atrophic) scar! It appears that not only are skin/dermis involved, but, also the underlying corrugator and frontalis muscles. In my view, the most reliable (and, in fact, the easiest) approach might be to strategically score out the defect - full thickness - and do a multilayer approximation of the soft tissue and skin - it would take 15 minutes. Then early on, at the first visit back at one week, pepper on fractional CO2 laser to the wound site to further promote smooth, even, improvement. Hope this helps.
Facial Scar Solutions--lasers, microneedling/prp, fillers
This can be improved with a combination treatment of lasers, microneedling/prp, and fillers. I recommend a formal consultation with a facial scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Scar above eyebrow
Excision of the scar that can be done under a local anaesthetic and careful suturing is likely to improve the quality of the scar. It will never get rid of the scar but is likely to provide a better contour and give less shadowing. Best wishes.
