Dermatologist 's  Response
Treatment of acne scars depend upon the severity and depth of scarring. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, manual dermabrasion, dermarollers, acne surgeries like subscision and in severe cases lasers are the options to treat acne scars. A proper treatment of your scars can only be done, once your skin has been analysed by a dermatologist.
In the meanwhile you may begin with daily application of Glycolic acid 6 percent and retino a cream over your scars to improve them. These two would only be useful, if scarring is mild and superficial.
Hope that answers your query. Take care.
