Thanks for your query.

I am very sorry to say that acne scars are very difficult to treat by any medication.

The only possible treatment for acne scars is Laser resufacing by fractional lasers.

There is another technique by the name dermaroller which can be used to a certain extent but not as good results as fractional lasers.

I would suggest you to consult a good dermatologist who can guide you suitable treatment after evaluation.

I hope, I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up queries.
