Lip atrophy after IIT
I would apply Plato's Scar Serum followed by HA fillers to help reduce the indentation. Some of the atrophy may resolve.
Injections for scar
Steroid injections are commonly used to to reduce scars but one of the side effects is atrophy, or thinning of the skin, which can leave a divot. It is temporary but may last a few months. If it persists, a small amount of filler can be used to plump the area.
