Razer Bump turned into a Permanent (Raised) Scar + Hyperpigmentation

Hi all, I've had this one particular bump (raised scar tissue) on my lower cheek for more than 4 years and I'm now looking for a solution to treat it.


1) How did it happen?

4 years back, it started off as a razor bump after doing a shave. It looks like an isolated pimple, mildly painful to the touch and all watery inside.


2) What did I do? 

I have a terrible habit of squeezing pimples and picking at scabs, so over time the razer bump got drained and turned into a scab, I kept picking on the scab until it turned into this raised scar.


3) Description of the Problem

The texture of the bump feels harder than the rest of my skin and I believe it to be a Hypertrophic scar as described on this site. Additionally it also created some hyperpigmentation on the area as well. It has not gotten away ever since. :smileys_n_people_15:


So how do I tackle both the 1.raised scar tissue and the 2.hyperpigmentation? Would appreciate any professional advice. Thanks

(Attached a picture below of my current situation)
