face laceration

I posted a question on Nov.1st about scarring after a facial laceration.  The scar looks really good, but a dimple is now where the scar is.  Is there anything that can be done during the healing process to prevent or minimize this?  Also, can this improve with time?

Dimpling within or about a traumatic scar is a result of underlying scar contracture with or without loss (necrosis or death) of damaged tissue.  No topical treatment will effectively treat this, but time and scar maturation may minimize the problem.
