Can you get facial scar treatment on the NHS?

Hi,

I have a scar on my forehead from an accident when I was 5, I’m now 25. The scar is about an inch long line that is dented and is visible mainly due to it being sunk. I don’t remember the accident and my father who was there at the time is no longer here. The scar is really affecting me and my mental health atm, I can not afford any treatments at this time but I want to try improve it in anyway. Creams and oils do not work, I think I a surgical treatment.
Does anyone know if you can get treatments for facial scars on the NHS? I’m happy to discuss this further with anyone, can send photos if required. Thanks
