Depending on the size and depth of your scar, there may be several non-surgical ways to improve it. One is with use of injections of either kenalog or kenalog with 5 fluorouracil. Also these injections can be used in combination with laser treatments such as the pulsed dye laser or fractional laser (fractional erbium or CO2).

Obviously you need a good physical exam and a proper history. What is the etiology of your problem. Sometimes it could be as simple as doing a small excision of the tissue.

What can you do? Post a photo at rest and smiling so we can determine the extent of the issue. Otherwise go see 3 boarded PS in your area.
