Different options: Fraxel and dermabrasions work well for acne scarring, as long as the acne is under control. It usually requires at least 3-4 treatments; if you are dark indian make sure to discuss risk or hyper pigmentation with different treatments. Also there are dermatologists who perform. Silicone droplet injection for this.

Treatments include but are not limited to mechanical dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and surgical scar revision. The treatment program and costs vary with the extent of the scarring and number of treatments required. See a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to check out your options.
