Around 12 years ago, I met with an accident due to which I got six stitches on my face. They left a scar after healing. I'd like to know if I get rid of these scars from my face. Kindly suggest options I can consider.

In order to get rid of surgical scars, a CO2 fractional laser is the best option as it shows promising results. But multiple sittings may be required depending upon the severity of the scars. If the scar is small in size, you can also opt for a scar revision surgery which gives very good results. (Read: Peel off years from your face with laser skin resurfacing)
It is best to visit a cosmetologist who can monitor the scars and advise a treatment based on his/her observation.
