Chicken Pox Scar Between Eyes?

I have one small indented scar from when I had chicken pox about 12 years ago. It used to not be very noticeable, but I have noticed that it is getting deeper as I get older. My dermatologist reccomended that I do a series of glycolic peels, with 30% on the rest of my face, and 70% in between my eyes where the scar is. I'm on my second peel, and haven't noticed any difference. The estetician said I should try laser genesis, but I'm worried about the price of it. What are my options and prices?

The most optimal treatment is scar excision and layered closure of the chicken pox scar to remove it altogether. 

 

I would perform this procedure under local anesthesia.
