In brief: Depends
If you have acne scars surgically removed then no bleeding expected.
If you have dermabrasion or ablative fractional laser resurfacing (e.g. Co2 or erbium-yag) you will have significant bleeding for several hours.

In brief: No
Acne surgery or acne extraction is minor surgery that does not usually require anesthesia.
There is little blood loss.
