Thank you for your photo! Scars continue to mature and improve over a year. Since yours is still young and remodeling, you can continue treating your scar with various topical options such as silicone-based strips or gels and most importantly - keep it out of the sun. Overtime, your scar should continue to improve on its own. For both young and older scars that have plateaued in their improvement, microneedling, fractionated laser, and radiofrequency make microscopic holes in the scar to stimulate your body to remodel and fill in the scar with new collagen. Finally, a surgical excision and possible tissue rearrangement can break up the line of the scar, make the scar thinner, and improve its appearance. For the best treatment options, it is important to visit an expert for an in-person examination. Hope this helps!

Lasers can help lighten and resurfacing the area. I suggest you see an expert for treatment options, surgical revision can be performed but can often leave a longer scar. Best, Dr. Emer.
You are demonstrating an atrophic scar which means that you have lost the layers of the skin underneath the most outer layer; this scar will never look good even after it fades; best to have it revised and brought together with appropriate stitches that hold the incision together so that you retain all the layers of the skin.
