In brief: Laser

Or silicone gels.
If revision of scar is needed probably best to see a plastic surgeon.

In brief: A suggestion

I would respecfully suggest that a better specialist to see would be a board-certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon.
While some dermatologists may perform scar treatments and revisions, they are not surgeons. Scar revisions are a standard part of the repertoire of the surgeons above, and they are equipped to deal with the complications of the treatment if any occur.
