What is a quick way to get rid of acne scars on my face?

No easy fix: Treatment varies according to the subtype of acne scars and the patient's skin type (pigmentation). Fractionated lasers (e.g. Fraxel) are effective in all but the darkest skin types. Filling agents benefit deperessed scars caused by loss of subcutaneous fat, while a facelift benefits patients with both acne scars and loose, inelastic skin. Vascular lasers can reduce any associated skin redness.
