In brief: Combination.
Usually need to combine a few treatments, but if you had to choose one, i would recommend fractionated laser co2 such as active fx.

In brief: Scars are permanent
Like all scars, acne scars are permanent.
There are things to improve the appearance: laser treatments, excision for ice pick type scars, or fillers are the most common form of treatment. Best to prevent acne.

In brief: Different options
Are available... First, you need to get control of the acne itself, if you haven't already.
Depending on the size, depth and number of scars you can consider peels, laser treatments, dermabrasion, etc. Seek consultation with a facial plastic surgeon.
