My method is using a wire to bypass the whole trace. Scraping the solder mask and the heat from the soldering iron can stress
the already damaged trace, and could lead to the trace lifting,
at the solder time or in future.
Can you show with photos and explain what the trace did.
For example, if the trace carried mains voltage to a relay
then you should try to maintain proper clearances for safety.
I am trying to just bypass the damaged part, following the
damaged track. However, is it sometimes hard, to get the repair
wire to stick to the track, so it my be easier to bypass the
track altogether and go pin-to-pin.
