Can I get a scar removed by my lip? (Photos)

About a month and a half ago my son busted my upper lip open on accident. I received four stitches and took them out five days later as recommended. I understand that it has not been that long but can the scar be removed? It's on my lip and it looks like a ugly cold sore. I've been covering it with silicone tape to help the healing process.

Lasers, surgery, microneedling can all be used .  Even subcision and filler.  I suggest you get a formal consultation.  Best, Dr. Emer.
