In brief: Improve not remove

There is no way to definitively remove facial scars.
In some cases, larger scars can be directly excised and improved. In other cases, a variety of techniques may be used such as cross tca, medical roll cit, dermabrasion and laser. Subcision and filler, prp and other techniques can also play a role. Most therapies involve a combination to work syngergistically to improve overall appearance.

In brief: Depends

Treatment has to be customized and in most cases it may improve rather than remove the scars.
There are various options available ranging from prp to fillers to dermabrasions to dermarollers. Consult a cosmetic surgeon near you.

In brief: Treatment vs removal

Scars can be treated based on their characteristics, location and age.
Options include scar revision, dermal fillers, lasers, dermabrasion, peels, etc. Obviously these recommendations must be customized for you. Seek out a board certified facial plasti surgeon.
