In brief: Difficult

Depends on the nature and depth of the scarring.
If minor, then use of resurfacing lasers and medium to deep chemical peels will help. If scars are "ice-pick" in nature, even deep mechanical dermabrasion is not totally effective. Most treat with deeper mechanical abrasion to provide a "planing" effect versus the surface change of microdermabrasion. See medical care.

In brief: Fade

Unfortunately you cannot "get rid" of acne scars.
There are ways to make them appear less noticeable. Protect your face from the sun. Prevent further outbreaks if possible. Laser treatments, dermabraisions, chemical peels and microdermabraisions can make them less noticeable. Sometimes excision of the punched out, ice pick, scars will also help. Injection of some type of filler is also used.

In brief: Rid not realistic

It is not realistic to get rid of scars.
A more reasonable goal is to diminish the appearance of the scars. Multiple options exist: ablative laser resurfacing, collagen induciton therapy (skin needlling), radiofrequency resurfacing, frationated laser therapy, etc.
