How do I make a scar on my face less obvious without surgery?
1 year ago
I fell onto a sharp metal object when I was around three, and it later got infected. The scar is very thin and flat, but it's on the longer side. It's on the right side of my mouth, and could pass as a smile line or a wrinkle if I were perpetually smiling or had wrinkles. Because of its size I don't really think surgery would help much but I would hope that it's possible to fade it slightly, using some sort of product or another. Thanks!
