Scars can involve textural change in the superficial and deep dermis, and can
also be associated with erythema, and less often, pigmentary change.
In general, treatment of acne scarring is a multistep procedure. First,
examination of  is necessary to classify the subtypes of
scarring that are present. Then, the patient´s primary concerns are
elicited, and the patient is offered a menu of procedures that may
address the various components of the scarring process...it can be removed by using chemical and mechanical peeling and also by laser treatment...stop present treatment consult good dermatologist they will examine and explain in detail
