Hi Neha,
This would require a procedure known as facial resurfacing. Depending on the extent of the pitted scars, you might also require subcision of the scars which means the scars have to be released from their attachment to the underlying skin. Too deep pits might require the instillation of fillers. I frequently use fat which I feel is one of the best natural fillers in deep pitted acne scars after subcision of the same.
