Acne Scars - Possible treatments include

Laser Resurfacing: Laser resurfacing works by burning away the top layers of skin. As the skin heals, it is replaced with new, fresher-looking skin. Icepick scars are usually too deep to correct with laser resurfacing, nor will it work on rolling scars, but this treatment is suitable for shallow boxcar scars
Dermal Fillers: There are numerous types of fillers that can be injected into the scars. This has the effect of raising the surface of the skin and "filling out" the scars. Dermal fillers are not permanent, since the substance injected e.g. collagen will eventually be metabolized by the body, so further treatments will be necessary

Surgical correction of scars includes procedures such as:

Punch Excision: The scar is removed with a punch tool and the edges sutured together. The new scar that is form eventually fades and will certainly not be as noticeable as the original acne scar. This procedure is most effective on deep scars
Punch Elevation: The base of the scar is removed using a punch tool (as above), but the walls of the scar are left intact. The base is then lifted to the surface of the skin and secured with sutures, skin glue or steri strips. This is recommended for use on deep boxcar scars with normal bases
Punch Excision with Skin Graft Replacement: After the scar has been excised with the punch tool, the gap is filled with a skin graft, which is usually taken from behind the ear. Because the color and texture of the skin may differ, skin resurfacing is recommended approximately 4-6 weeks after the grafting procedure
Subcutaneous Incision or Subcision: This is a technique used to break up the fibrous bands that causes rolling scars Read Less
