How to Remove Nail Scratch Scar on Face

I am 30 years old and I recently had a nail scratch on my face. How can I remove that? Two months ago, my son scratch his nail on my face. Will it be possible to remove that scar permanently? Please advise. Are there ointments for that to be removed?

Pulsed dye scar laser and MelaPeel chemical peels seem to improve these scars and minimize their appearance.
