HI manik,

Dermaroller is an excellent method for treating superficial acne scars.

4-5 sitting of dermaroller are usually required.

If you have deeper scars then subcision is a good alternative.

You can also opt for CO2 or Nd Yag lasers for acne scars.

Meanwhile keep applying RetinoA cream for scars.
