Various: Peels can work over time. Fractional co2 ablation can do wonders to get rid of this scars. Microdermabrasion can help in less severe cases. Very severe cases require surgery oftentimes

Laser/excision: If an acne scar is depressed, consideration of local excision or a resurfacing laser treatment might be helpful. Typically, if the scar is deep, peels and creams cannot effectively eradicate the issue.

Numerous choices: There are a variety of treatments that vary according to the severity of scars: chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, fillers, fat grafting, excision, grafting, etc.
