I have a scar after a bike accident. What's the best way to remove it? (Photo)

Hello, I had a bike accident in February. I now have one scar now, one from about seven stitches over my eyebrow . I would love to know what my options are for repairing it. I have been using mederma since the accident, but I still have to use cover up every day. Would laser treatment be effective? I am black, but the area is not a keloid, just much darker than the rest of my face. I am located in India, Aligarh and would love any help! Pic attached is from August.

Surgical scar revision is likely best. Non surgical options include subcision and Plato's Scar Serum.

This can be treated with a combination approach I suggest seeing an expert.  Fillers, lasers, microneedling/PRP and skin care.  Please see an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
