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 on the face

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