Acne ScarsAt-home treatments: While Kauvar says that in-office procedures work best, you can get results with topical products at home. Look for products with retinoids and/or vitamin C to stimulate collagen, which will help tighten the skin and minimize the look of depressed acne scars. (Try: SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0, $48 or Dermalogica ChromaWhite TRx System, $188.)
In-office treatments: Kauvar says you can use resurfacing lasers to cause new collagen growth (which will fill in the depressions of the scars). Another option is "subcision, where a needle is inserted beneath the skin to break up the scar tissue," Kauvar says. "Often multiple different approaches are needed for best results."
