In brief: A few options

First, if the scar is red or swollen, use an over-the-counter cortisone cream to calm the skin.
You can also do laser therapy or filler therapy, within one to three sessions, laser skin resurfacing using fractionated laser technology can even out the skin surface and increase new collagen formation to help fill in acne scars. Wear plenty of sunscreen, sun makes the scars worse. Hope this helped :].
