Improve not remove: The best treatment is Accutane but most start with antibiotics & skin care regimen with benzoyl peroxide/salicylic. Acid many options exist for cosmetic improvement and include anti-inflammatories, peels, exfoliation, lasers, resurfacing, bleaching, excision, grafting, fillers, and much more, scars vary in their severity and so do the treatments. See plastic surgeon/dermatologist/ent for options.
