I have dog's nail scar on my nose which is 20 years old. Is there any scar removal method for this?

The most effective method I have found, which is especially effective on the nose, is dermabrasion.  This usually takes only a few minutes and heals beneath a small bandage in 5-7 days with usually a 60+% improvement.
