9 months ago, i did some self injury with a

Patient : 9 months ago, i did some self injury with a razor on my arm, the next few days i put neosporin on the wound to prevent healing, i then started using mederma with spf for about 2 months, then switched to EV olive oil, and now ive been using bioil for 3 months. The problem is i think i may have used to much neosporin the first few days which impeded the healing because now the scarring looks indented, and awful in lighting. I have started using a body scrub on my arm to stimulate new cell growth, along with bioil daily. Is there anything else i can do to make my scarring not so noticable? Im getting married in 4 months and want to improve the scars anyway i can. Thanks!
