Scar revision will help improve the contour of your eyebrow scar. With your skin tone, I would also recommend Melarase pre and post op to prevent PIH>

A scar revision which will better approximate the edges may help. Why dont you seek an evaluation by a board certified plastic surgeon

Yes but there is always a risk of further scarring. Please seek in person evaluations from PSs in your city.

Hi Earlobe.  While we cannot suggest anything cheap that  would help, we would suggest, traditional CO2 or Erbium laser resurfacing and fractional CO2 or Erbium laser resurfacing.  All have the potential to improve your scars.

Scar revision of the brow part of the scar to restore the hairline and scar fractional and full resurfacing would help significantly.  Good luck!
