What is the treatment for facial scarring after acne?

There are many! Depends on the age of the patient, the pattern of scars and the skin type. Some scars can be injected with filling agents. Bound down scars must first be 'released' (subcision) before fillers or tissue grafts can be effective. Isolated scars can be excised. If there are many scars and the skin is lax, facelift can be helpful. Fractionated lasers and dermabrasion encourage new collagen production.
Laser abrasion. Several options are available, but the most effective, in my experience, is laser abrasion, which smoothes out the edges of the scars to make them less visible. Find a dermatologist who has done lots and lots of them; you don't want a beginner doing this procedure.
