Scar on Nose-- Lasers (Fraxel, Co2, Erbium), Microneedling/PRP, Subcision, Fillers
This needs a combination of lasers and fillers like bellafill. I suggest seeing an expert in scarring and cosmetic laser treatments. Best, Dr. Emer.
Scar on the nose tip
I would start with Plato's Scar Serum. Assuming the scar is not tethered, I would suggest Restylane injections to build up the atrophy.
Scar on nose
The scar on your nose is most noticeable because it is depressed. This depression creates a shadow line when light shines on it making it more noticeable. I would recommend a complete excision of the scar with everted suture closure followed by dermabrasion 6-8 weeks later. Hope this helps.
