Scar caused by botox
Scars can be improved by the use of microneedling, laser resurfacing, or with big enough indentations- fillers. For your specific scar, as it appears small, I would suggest microneedling. The procedure works by using a tool (microneedling pen) to create a minor injury to the area stimulating new growth of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are essential components of this skin, and after healing allow it to be more smooth and taught thus decreasing the appearance of scars

Thank you for your question Kostaboda1. Scars can be treated with a variety of modalities, regardless of how they were created. These include fractional laser resurfacing, chemical peels, laser skin tightening, and radiofrequency devices. I recommend consulting with a doctor for specific advice. Good luck!
