The options you have for your acne scars are Laser treatment, as Profractional laser or even a mini face lift to stretch out the skin and get rid of the scars. Fillers are not long lasting results. You should look into laser. Good luck
Treating Acne Scars
Luckily, acne scars anywhere on the body can be successfully diminished with the use of laser treatments. I prefer the Fraxel re:store laser (or re:pair, depending on your particular wishes for recovery time, immediacy of results, etc). First, however, it's important to make sure your breakouts are completely under control, as any progress made by the laser shouldn't be deterred by current acne.
