In brief: Many options

There are many different ways to try to improve the appearance of acne scars.
The best place to start is with a consultation with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can review the expected results with skin care, resurfacing procedures, injections or surgical techniques. Unfortunately this is often a difficult problem and you need to go in with the expectation of improvement, not perfection.

In brief: Acne scar treatment

Treatment for acne scars depends on the type & location of the scars as well as your skin type.
For facial acne scars, common treatments include fraxel and fractionated co2 resurfacing. In some cases a mild for of surgery called submission can be helpful. Pulsed light or pulsed dye laser may be useful for red scars . I'd suggest seeing a dermatologist to help determine best treatment options.
