Won't touch it: Acne scars can be made less visible by a dermatologist who can use surgery, lasers, fillers, or abrasion. Your choice of foods will have no impact. I'm sorry your acne was neglected; it can always be treated effectively and is not lifestyle or hygiene related. Several hollywood stars have kept their scars for the "tough guy" look.

Not much: Dietary change impacts scars. Avoid red wine for reduction in redness.
