Yes helpful: Series of deep fractional laser treatments may help acne scars, but unlikely to remove all. Depending on shape and depth of scars influences result. Example, 'ice pick' type scars hard to remove, 'crater-like' poc marks do better to smooth scar margins from nearby skin. Also may need mechanical dermabrasion which improves surface smoothness.
