**Minor Disclaimer: With any health issue it is ALWAYS better to seek the help of a veterinarian... Many people learn the hard way what is severe and what is not and I would hate for that to happen to you and your animal**

That being said:
Depends on the severity, I've seen multiple Uroplatus (including fimbriatus) with some nasty nose injuries and recovered with no treatment at all. Linneatus are notorious for having such an aggressive feeding strike that they repeatedly re-injure their noses and I've seen fimbriatus do the same. If it's eating well and seems otherwise healthy I would monitor for any signs of infection but otherwise let it be. The stress of manipulation and treatment can sometimes be worse than the wound its self on some of the more fragile geckos. If you have a picture of the injury that could help give us a better idea as to the severity and recommend whether it needs attention or not.

good luck
