== == My sister has acne scars and she has been to a dermatologist. They said that they can do a chemical peel which will help to get rid of or reduce the appearance of the scars. A chemical peel should only be considered once you are fairly sure your acne breakout days are over, otherwise it will be pointless procedure. You may also want to try a few more mild products on your skin such as some over the counter facial scrubs, benzoyl peroxide, etc.
