There are few surgical treatments for acne scar.But before surgical procedure do discuss the risks thoroughly with your surgeon.Infections and color changes,additional scarring, skin thinning are always a risk.And discuss regarding your present and past health and medications.

Some surgical treatments may include:

Laser Skin resurfacing:
Ablative Co2/Er:YAG laser skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of acne scar of all types but requires significant postoperative would care and recovery time.A newer fractional resurfacing device,FRAXEL,shows promice for remodeling acne scar through a series of treatments with less downtime.Nonablative laser are thought to stimulate collegen production and thereby gradually improve the appearance of pitted acne scars.

Demarbasion using high speed diamond buffing drills can remove small and superficial scars and sometimes deep scars.However this method is lightly dependent on practioner technique and can result in scarring in untrained professionals.

Fat transfer and injection of filler substance can be used to elevate acne scar.

Other technique like Punch excision,Punch elevation and Elliptical excision can also be used to remove isolated ice-pick or deep boxar scars.

I've tried microdermabrasion already. I just simply refer to it as "diamond peel." Anyway, it's not painful at all but it's quite expensive and it hasn't worked for me! I've undergone almost 6 sessions already, once per month, but I haven't seen results. That's the worst part of it. SO I don't really recommend getting this kind of treatment.

There's another procedure I tried which looks like it worked though. I call it IPL (which stands for intense pulse light); it's a kind of non-invasive laser surgery. The only discomfort here is that there's a burning sensation on your skin. But after my first treatment, my acne scars seem to have lightened. My dermatologist advised me to get the treatment once a month only, so I haven't been back yet. But I'll definitely go back for more! I'm hoping to get rid of all my pimple marks after 3 successive treatments. :)

You might want to try this before getting other surgical treatments. :) It's not that expensive and it really did work on me.

There have been a number of exciting advances in laser medicine which have resulted in vast improvements in our ability to acne scar treatment. There is now a whole range of lasers that can be used to achieve satisfactory results. We now use non-ablative lasers, which, unlike CO2, do not remove the top layers of the skin and are non-destructive. These lasers have a lot less risk and are more effective at treating acne scarring than the ablatives. My treatment of choice for acne scarring is a pulsed-dye laser. One of the benefits of the pulsed-dye laser is that it can take the redness out of the acne scars. Since often acne scars are red, this can very quickly, within a month, improve the appearance of acne scars tremendously.

Surgeons use a number of procedures to remove acne scars in the operating room. In most cases, the area is cleaned and a “freeze spray” is applied before treatment begins.

Microdermabrasion: Your surgeon uses a rotary instrument to sandblast the top layer of skin. Anesthesia is used at your doctor’s discretion. You may experience a burning sensation; pain medication is prescribed. Healing usually takes seven to 10 days, and you'll notice a newer, fresher look as your skin starts to heal.

Collagen Injections/Tissue Fillers: Deep pinmarks or pockmarks disappear with the injection of collagen because it plumps up your skin. Sunken scarring can be improved when your surgeon injects fat from another part of your body or inserts implants under your skin.

Excision and Punch Replacement Graft: A facial scar is removed by placing skin from another area of your body and patching it at the scar site.

Keloid Scar Removal: Your surgeon cuts away the raised, fleshy scarring, and stitches are sewn to the incision site.

Laser Therapy: By directing short pulses of laser light, your physician will smooth out scarred areas. The three most common lasers used are the ultrapulsed carbon dioxide laser, the erbium YAG laser and the pulsed dye yellow light laser.

Chemical Peel: Your dermatologist applies a solution to your face, and within days, the top layers of skin peel off and a new, fresh layer of skin is revealed.

I had acne scars too . i couldn't afford surgeries and laser treatments so i opt for buying scar removal products. I used so many different scar reducing creams but none incredibly worked for me. Recently I heard about this product inviCible scars. I bought it too hoping that it might work out for me and yes it really did !! my scars reduced within 2 weeks.. I’m using it more often now .. One more thing .. since I was appying it on my entire face , I also found out that it has vanished the dark spots that I had for years.i like this product

There are different treatments for different scars. Methods should be considered along with risks involved.
