I Have a Scar-like Cut on my Face, Its a Little Bit Deep. It Healed but the Mark is So Visible. How Do I Get Rid of It? (photo)

When I was 9 years old (8 years ago) I was running and hit my face on a commercial bus, I got a deep cut on my face and lost a lot of blood. When it healed it left a deep one-inch scar-like cut. I have tried using mederma scar cream but it didn't help. I really need help cause I look so ugly with this scar and can do anything to clear the cut out my face.

Laser can resurface the scar and scar revision can reduce the depression. If you are bothered by the scar, visit a plastic surgeon to discuss these options.
