In brief: It

It sounds like you might be describing a scar that was created from having the birth control implanted in her arm. Hard to tell without a picture.
This is possibly a hypertrophic scar or keloid scar. These are tough to improve but options would include silicone gel sheeting (otc), Retin-A cream, laser treatments, or injections of steroid into the area. I hope that helps!
