In brief: Combination therapy

A variety of approaches are necessary to improve not remove acne scars.
Specific therapy is dependent on the type of scars and skin type. Potential therapies include subcision, cross tca, medical roll cit, dermabrasion, laser and other treatments, including prp.

In brief: Varies

If your scarring is flat and only has a surface change, use of a variety of treatments may help (laser, chemical, mechanical dermabrasion to resurface, etc).
If depressed (tissue loss), may need removal and suture repair to minimize the appearance. Too many vaiables to answer this question without a photo and more history. Good home care using mild abrasive cloths often help remove the old skin.
