In brief: Yes

Acne surgery or acne scar treatments encompass a wide variety of procedures.
This can include laser resurfacing/ dermabrasion to smooth the scar tissue. Scar removal and revision to remove deep scars, subcision and filler treatment to lift tethered scar tissue. A dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon can review all of the options with you and determine which is best.

In brief: Yes

It is a bit of a misnomer, but there is a billing code for "acne surgery" that is used for removal of milia, which are little tiny cysts that are common in people with acne.
