You need more injections to the scar. I had three injections to one scar and it flattened. But this was over the course of a year. Also, retin a will smooth out the skin depending on the percentage. 1% will help. Anything less will not do much. You could also combine your injections with cortisteriod tape, as them used in conjunction prove good results.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

More injections, silicon sheets, radiation, etc.

Maybe a combination treatment of injections and pulsed dye laser?

Ask your dermatologist. He's likely going to recommend more injections.
