Vertical scar fore head treatment?

your scar is depressed and wide. This is best revised by excision and proper closure by a very experienced surgeon. Other mini procedures will not decrease the width of the scar etc. .

Indented scar solutions with lasers, microneedling/prp and fillers

This can be improved with a combination of lasers, microneedling/prp and fillers. I recommend getting a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer
