I have a pitted scar,the size of a nickel on my left cheek, its not just one solid level but more like mountains and valleys, Its from some type of skin problem I had when I was 2-3 years old. (I'm 26 now) I also have another one on the left side of my face, in the sideburn area. When I was 14 i got a sand abrasion on the one in my sideburn area which healed into a huge red keloid scar Two years I got a filler (3 full syringes) on the one in the center of my cheeck which just gave me a fat cheek

Treatment of a depressed and textural scar on the cheek
Your scar can benefit from a combination of subcision, Ematrix RF, fillers, and fractional lasers to help improve texture and contour.
Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist with experience to determine what combinations are best. Pitted scars need TCA cross or surgical removal along with lasers and microneedling/PRP. Best, Dr. Emer.
Large scar cheek treatment?
This is indeed a very difficult problem. The scar may be improved with serial excision done by a VERY experienced plastic or Facial plastic surgeon. It cannot be totally removed without adding scars to your face.
