Resurfacing: There are also combined treatment options which use dermabrasion as well as ablative laser resurfacing (often Carbon Dioxide) and/or chemical peels. Depth of acne scarring, facial areas, and skin color/type all play into the best treatment option. Plastic or facial plastic surgeons as well as dermatologists specialize in this type of treatment.See 1 more doctor answer

Better choices exist: Maderma is an ointment or cream based on an "active" extract from onions. There does not seem to be much scientific proof of it's effectiveness. We have been using a new scar cream with skin growth factors (Novoscar) which has been remarkable on scars. Unfortunately, your scar sounds like a "depressed" scar, and would probably need excision or laser treatment for improvement.
Fractionated laser: One of the best treatments for acne scarring is fractionated laser. Depending on your skin color, texture and extent of scarring there are different laser options out there. A non-ablative fractionated laser like the fraxel re:store or dual has no real downtime, but requires multiple treatments. A fractionated co2 laser is more aggressive with about a week downtime, but may give faster results.See 1 more doctor answer
