How to treat this mark on my lip? (Photo)

I have had what i think is a scar on my lip for the past 8 and a half months now I believe since seeing a dentist since I felt a painful prick in my bottom lip on the left side while they were doing a cleaning etc. I didn't notice immediately and then thought that it would go away but it still hasn't. Do you know what might help with this? Or how to get rid of it?

Angioma scar on the lip

The red spot may represent an angioma of some type. I would suggest pulsed dye laser to help resolve the angioma.
