== == There have been numerous advances in dermatology lately. The number one way to rid your skin of scars would be dermabrasion. Also, laser light therapy would make an incredible difference too. Having acne scars is no longer permanent. These procedures might be a bit costly so check out a good "derm' in your neighborhood and see what he/she can recommend. Good luck.

How can I eliminate acne scars?

The short answer is that you can't eliminate acne scars, not truly. Before looking into things you can do to reduce your scarring, your best bet is to first make sure you have gotten rid of the acne so that you won't get it in the future and then work on accepting your scars, understanding that they don't define you. There are various cosmetic surgical procedures that you can have to reduce the appearance of acne scars. The kind of procedures that would be used in any person's particular case would completely depend on the kind of scars he or she has. All procedures are expensive and almost certainly not covered by insurance and it is almost certain that you will not be able to get rid of the appearance of scars completely. Basically, if you were to decide to get surgery, you would still need to be realistic about the kind of improvement you expect. Unfortunately, the best way to get rid of acne scars is to get acne treated when you're young so that you never get the scars. It's very sad that educators, parents, and the medical community do not do a better job of recognizing the pain that acne (and later, acne scars) brings to people so that they can intervene before the acne gets out of hand.
