In brief: Acne Scar Treatment

There are a number of options for acne scars depending on their size, shape, depth, and skin type.
Laser resurfacing, usually fractional, may help improve the texture of the skin but may require multiple treatments. If there is deep scarring, the scars can be excised or cut out. Subcision, releasing the scar underneath the skin, along with fillers or fat can also improve the skin texture.

In brief: Microdermabrasion

I have had many patients have microdermabrasion which seems to remove the top layers of the skin and it improves the appearance of the acne scars.
