In brief: Wound care
It is impertive that your tetanus is up to date and the wound has been thouroughly cleansed.
In general. Clean, moist wounds whose edges are well approximated under minimal tension will tend to produce optimal scarring. Gentle cleansing of a contaminated wound with subsequent moist dressings will general produce the least prominent scar. Scar massage/pressure/occlusion may help.

In brief: Several Things
Early suture repair is critical.
After this, the laceration should be cleansed with soap and water twice daily and antibiotic ointment applied. Elevation is important as is offloading (avoid putting pressure on the repaired laceration) for a few weeks.
