I also find that some people need a combination treatment with the Fraxel laser as well as dermal fillers for the very deep scars. Consult with a board certified dermatologist in your area- you can search for doctors on RealSelf to see their profiles and answers.

Fractional Laser for Acne Scars
Treating acne scars can be difficult. It usually involves a combination of Laser resurfacing, fractional resurfacing, subcision with or without filler/fat grafts, and direct excision for deep "ice-pick" acne scars.
Partial improvement can be achieved but 100% complete improvement is unlikely.
To be sure what is right for you, see two or more skilled, board certified plastic surgeons or dermatologists in your area.
I hope this helps.
