How to Get Rid of a Small Hole on my Face? Age? Cost? (photo)

I have a small hole, about a centimeter big, that I got when I had chicken pox as a little kid. Ive always wanted to get rid of it because people are always pointing it out. Ive heard of laser and microdermoabrasion but I dont know how they work. Also I am 15 so what is the minimum age limit that doctors usually perform the treatment you suggest. Average Cost for a scar this small???

Chicken pox scars can be excised and restitched to improve contour and skin texture.  Percutaneous scar release works well as an adjunct.
