There are multiple options available for scar over face, first of all if it a small and depressed faint scar with out hypertrophy then can be treated with contractubex ointment along with silicone sheath application. And if scar is big and hypertrophic then may need scar revision under local anaesthesia with extremely fine and cosmetic surtures.
