thanks for your question. Fortunately, in this day and age, we do have a lot of options for acne scars. The caveat to that, though, is that it is difficult to completely eradicate them but they can certainly be improved. So, really, it depends on how bad the scars are before you start. The treatment options are; topical lightening agents if there is hyperpigmentation in the scars, fractional laser resurfacing, radiofrequency fractional resurfacing, microneedling with or without platelet rich plasma (PRP), subcision and injection of fillers. This may sound overwhelming, but often we will use a combination of these things to give nice results. We are seeing particularly nice results with microneedling and PRP.  Hope this helps.
