How to Remove Chemical Burn Scar on Nose?

I have a scar in the end of my nose that is approximately 1/2cm in diameter that was caused by a chemical burn last November. Although it has filled in quite a lot there is a noticeable indent. Should I leave it for some more months to see if it will fill in?

Although the scar may continue to improve naturally over time (out to 1 year), the indent can also be safely & successfully filled out by a specialist physician with a variety of fillers such as radiesse, evolence, or the hyaluronic acids like restylane and juvederm.
