Acne scars: Depends on what they look like, how deep they are and how big an area you are talking about. Subtle treatments include microdermabrasion and chemical peels. More aggressive treatments can be done with Erbium or fractionated CO2 lasers. Sometimes, ice pick, deep scars can benefit from cutaneous fillers like Radiesse or Juvederm . See an ENT facial plastic surgeon or general plastic surgeon.
