I think I killed my Le Creuset griddle pan with a brillo pad...can I rescue it?

I rarely use it but last night decided to grill some halloumi. It was not a great success...it melted and burnt onto the pan. I soaked it and scrubbed it with the washing up brush, then in desperation (and after wine...) used a Brillo pad. Which did remove the burnt on food but I suspect that I have completely fucked the surface of the pan.
Can it be rescued? Reseasoned in some way?

Maybe

Thank you but it's not the enamel that's scratched. It's a pan a bit like this so cast iron on the actual grilly bit.
I have tried reseasoning by lightly coating in vegetable oil and leaving in a hot oven for an hour and it looks better. Fingers crossed for next time I use it!

Oh right, that's right. Well, I had a look and you can re-season although it looks like massive job if done completely. I hope your effort pays off.
