I'm in the leather refinishing buisness. the only thing you can do is have the affected area repaired & dyed. What city are you near in Ohio? Let me know and I'll see if I have an assc. in that area

Call a local used car lot (preferably one that deals in highline cars) and ask them who they would recommend for leather dyeing.

We use a guy who is darn good.

Learned a lot buying our Leather furniture last year. Many finishes can be simply revived by conditioning the leather. Therefore, take a coushion(sp?) into a high-end leather sofa store and ask a qualified person there about it. They may have a conditioner you can buy and remove the names.
