Acne is annoying and takes tons of work to get rid off, however even after the skincare battle annoying acne leaves undesirable acne spots which seem to be impossible to get rid off.
Good news, there are actually quite a few procedures which can help you to treat acne scars.
Microdermabrasion is exfoliation treatment performed with a diamond tip removing a skin top layer. Microdermabrasion is quite mild, so no numbing cream is required. It is suitable for all skin types and skin tones. Also does a good job in skin resurfacing and fading dark spots, sun damage and reducing the appearance of fine lines and stretch marks.
Downtime: your face most likely will be pinkish after the procedure depending on your skin sensitivity. However, it will go away within 1-2 hours.

Microneedling is great collagen boosted and skin renewal procedure. Microneedles penetrate the surface of the skin enabling the new cells production. Some people refer to microneedling as “vampire’s facial” due to tiny blood spots on the surface of the skin, however, it is not that scary as it sounds. The procedure requires numbing cream though. For extra benefits request a serum with the procedure which will penetrate deeper layers of your skin.
Downtime: your skin will be red and irritated for 2-3 days and very sensitive. So no makeup, lots of SPF and no alcohol or hot showers for a day after the treatment.

A chemical peel is a chemical solution which is applied to the skin which peels off after some time. It is great for skin brightening and just, in general, making skin appear smoother. There are a variety of chemical peels with different concentration so make sure you talk to an esthetician about your skin concerns so they can select the right one for you.
Downtime: depending on the strength of chemical peel the downtime varies. Usually, the redness is gone within a couple of hours.
