How can I restore my black skin from a scar? (Photo)

Well almost 4years ago I took a jog this was at night so I couldn't really see whats in front of me so I hit a thin iron cable on my nose and now I have a black strip on my nose. I tried using clinique face products but they clearly didn't work as much as I expected

Laser therapy and Melarase PM for dark scars

Our office recommends a combination of Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase PM to help reduce dark scarring on the nose. I would combine with Clear and Brilliant and Melapads.

Lasers, peels, skin care and microneedling/PRP can all be used to improve complexion.  Please see an expert for treatment options.  Best, Dr. Emer.
