Yes. The best treatment is resurfacing with combined fractional erbium beam laser and complete superficial resurfacing with erbioum beam.

There are many non-surgical options you should first consider prior to resorting to surgery. First and foremost is prevention of future acne attacks.

One important factor is prevent new scars-get your acne under control. Find a dermatologist to tackle that with you. Most treatment to improve the appearance of acne scars use special technology to remodel the skin. The device I use to treat acne scars is called ematrix--see for info: http://www.Smacboca.Com/e-matrix-sublative-rejuvenation.Html other options include fractional lasers or subscision.

Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon or dematologist to evaluate your personal options. This may include lasers, chemical peels, dermabrasion or prescription skin care. There are many options and you need a regimen tailored to your specific situation and expected results.
