Hello zubaida khanum~ Many options are available to improve the appearance of facial scars. If the mark is pigmented, it may benefit from a laser treatment or bleaching cream. If there is a textural irregularity such as a depression, it may be improved with surgical excision, resurfacing with microneedling and PRP, or filler injection. Please include a photograph or see a physician for more detailed recommendations. Best wishes,
