I perform revision rhinoplasty and use both pulsed dye scar laser and scar excision on alarplasty and columellar scars, as appropriate.

This is impossible to answer without photos. Sometimes a revision can shift scar position making it less noticeable other times lasers can lighten the scar making it less noticeable etc.
