There are a variety of treatments to reduce acne scarring.  Some of the treatments include Sublative RF treatments, surgical dermabrasion and laser resurfacing.

Fraxel is a great treatment for cystic acne scars.  I would wait at least 3 to 6 months from new scars to do Fraxel to see if the scars go away with time.  The redness from acne or acne scars can be treated immediately with the V-Beam laser.
