You must first visit a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon to see what type of laser is appropriate for your skin type.

You can never remove a scar, once present. However, multiple options for improving the appearance of acne scars exist. Depending on your skin and exact circumstances your facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist may recommend laser treatments (including co2, 1550 nm erbium), peels, dermabrasion, or well as topical treatments. Seek a physician with experience.
