Can I Save my 18 Year Old Skin?

I have a 5 month old 7mm wide scar on my forehead. It still has edges, its not tethered down, b/c its at the surface as far as I can tell. It's very superficial. As most of my scars are... So I'm curious, what could soften or remove them? Chemical peels? Microdermabrasion? Can they be removed permanently because they are more superficial than most acne scars? Please answer...:/

I use the pulsed dye laser and fractional co2 laser for skin resurfacing of the scars to improve their appearance.
