I Have a Hyperpigmented Chicken Pox Scar on my Nose, over 10 Years Old, Any Treatment Options? (photo)

As said in the question, I have a hyper pigmented chicken pox scar on my nose, and it really does affect my confidence. It is over 10 years old. Also I am Indian if that is a factor. Are there any treatment/removal options in Sydney, Australia?

Hyperpigmentation can be treated with Melarase cream or another option is surgical excision of the scar, much like an unwanted mole, with layered closure.
