Does Dermabrasion or Any Other Procedure Have Potential to "Remove" Scars Permanently?

Hi. If fractional co2 laser doesn't remove acne scars permanently, does any other procedure do? Maybe dermabrasion or older ablative lasers (those doing aggressive removal of skin) can PERMANENTLY "remove" scars? Thank You for Your answers!

Combining scar removal options to further improve a scar

Permanent scar removal is a difficult request.  Dermatologists and plastic surgeons strive to make scars better.  I would use a combination of fractional laser and dermabrasion to further improve the look of your scars, if appropriate.
