In brief: Different treatments

Blackheads do not need cosmetic surgery.
They can be treated easily with topical medicines. Scarring may require surgery with a scalpel, laser, steroid injections or other method. Depends on the scar. However, scars are basically permanent marks but their severity can be reduced.

In brief: Fillers

You can use cosmetics fillers to possibly reduce the appearance of depressed acne scars.
Often they are used in conjunction with other treatments such as subcision and chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
