Excoriation After Laser Hair Removal. Is It a Scar or is It Still Healing? (photo)

I have brown skin and am of Indian descent. I had Laser Hair Removal 10 weeks ago (1st tx). A month from then, I noticed a small black spot on my jawline. I scratched this spot repeatedly and the skin just peeled off. There was no blood. 6 weeks later, the skin is pale pink but not white. If I squeeze the area, the scar blanches distinctly. The healed wound is level with my skin and seems to blend. Could this still be normal skin that is still healing? Is it a scar because it blanches?
