Microneedling can do wonders sometimes
We've found that microneedling - which is a procedure in which a series of small needles is used to improve the scarring can really help alot. Lasers can also be useful but we've gotten the best results with the microneedling. It's very comfortable and effective, and not especially expensive.
Acne Scars don't go away with pills.
Acne Scars | Topical Treatment Options
Topical treatments with retinoids is very beneficial for complexion and discoloration on the skin. However, topical treatment nor oral treatment will help with the surface of the skin. Further treatment options would be the following:
- Fractional vs C02 laser
To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.
