Question:

I had a skin cancer lesion removed from my cheek with Mohs surgery and it left a big scar that’s impossible to hide. Is there any way to make it less conspicuous?

Answer:

If your Mohs reconstruction was performed over a year ago, giving time for the scar to mature, scar revision could be considered.  Other options for visible scars include dermabrasion, laser treatments and sometimes an injectable filler for depressed scars.  A thorough evaluation would be required to make that determination.
