In brief: Yes

Both fractionated carbon dioxide and erbium lasers offer significant improvement for scars.
The erbium offers faster healing time of 3-4 days and is appropriate for recent or old scars as well as surgical scars.

In brief: Sometimes

Acne scars need a variety of treatments.
Some types of scars can respond to lasers, however many do not. In particular, deeper scars are less likely to see a response with a laser.
