This looks like it went through and touched the plastic, you'll need to bondo-repaint.

Exactly my thoughts. Doing it yourself isn't an option unless you know how to work with leveling plastic as well as repainting the panel. Some carefully placed touchup may help make it look better for the time being, but to really fix it you'll need a body shop unfortunately.
