Options exist: 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.

Acne: Topical vitamin c can really help with acne scarring. Laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion and surgery can also help.

How to remove acne scar using natural remedies?

Can't be done: No one, not even a dermatologist, can remove a scar. The dermatologists can make them less conspicuous using lasers, fillers, abrasion or surgery. No "natural" home remedy works. Truth is that no kid should have to have acne scarring in the first place; if a preference for "natural healing" caused you to be scarred as a teen, you'd be right to be angry. But your scars should be treatable if u want.

None : For best results, consult with a dermatologist; and use something that is made specifically for your skin!
