(HealthDay News) -- While there is no perfect treatment to eliminate all acne scars, there are remedies that can significantly reduce their appearance.

The Nemours Foundations offers this list of potential options:

  • Laser resurfacing, which removes the top layer of damaged skin.
  • Dermabrasion, which wears down the skin, fostering a new, smoother layer of skin as it heals.
  • Fractional laser therapy, which affects deeper layers of skin without damaging the top layer.
  • A chemical peel.
  • Injections or surgery.
