hello..thanks for your query

There are Lasers and other procedures like Dermaroller, subscision , peels which are indicated to reduce the depth of the scars.Fractional lasers are a type of such lasers .The outcome of the procedure depends on the depth of pores, duration since they are present , your age etc.So you can visit a dermatologist who does the procedure and get your self assessed for the same.
no treatment can make it go away totally , but by a correct combination of required treatments , they can be reduced to a good extent.
Hope this is helpful.
take care!

Hi Vinod,
Thanks for writing to us.
Acne scars can be treated by various modalities like microdermabrasion, dermarollers, acne scar surgeries like punch excision, subscision, CROSS technique by using TCA peel and fraxel laser.
What would work best on your scars can only be commented upon after examining your scars. Hence I would advise you to visit a dermatologist near by.
Hope that helps. Take care
