How to get rid of under-the-skin acne scars?

Acne scar vs active acne
From you description, it is difficult to determine if you have scars under the skin or active acne, since your dermatologist has recommended oral antibiotics. Oral antibiotics will not help scars that are present, but can prevent future scars. Need more photos or a face to face consultation.
Improving acne with antibiotics
There are multiple ways to treat this type of acne. Oral antibiotics are helpful. Laser can be used as well. Accutane has also been used but is not my preference.
Acne and Comedonal Acne
It sounds like you may have comedonal acne that needs to be extracted by your dermatologist. Please consult an expert in acne and scars for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
