You've got multiple options for treating your acne scars, even with your darker complexion. For example, microneedling is a safe and effective option that can be used on all skin types. Other options include chemical peels and laser treatments. The 'tincture of time' can also be effective as these scars will lighten up over time even if you do nothing at all. Skin lightening creams can also help.
