Before we start over and review all the effective practices that definitely have worked for others, a few things you should keep in mind are:
Not all methods work for everyone due to the differences in the skin types, the nature, and type of acnes and pimples, the age of the person, the age of the scars as for how long they have been on your skin and your own practices to keep your skin healthy.

The Main Causes
The main cause of developing acne scars is the damage done by the pimples and acnes on the upper layers of the skin. The skin loses its cells and develops a deep dent on the upper layers while some scars go deep and damage the deeper layers of the skin as well. The deeper and older the scar is, the harder it would be to remove it.
Types of scars
Scars can be superficial, which can be treated through herbal ways, and such skin can be retrieved quickly, whereas deeper and older ones need more time to be removed.
Types of remedies
The basic thing that is intended for all kinds of scar removal techniques is to regenerate or facilitate the generation of collagen on the skin surface to reform the skin and cover the deep dents on the skin.
You may find scar removal remedies categorized as:
• Medicine or surgical methods
• Herbal and homemade methods
Medicine or surgical methods
Due to the fact that people need immediate results and can’t wait to see the results for a long time, they might prefer using the ways that give immediate or quick results like:

Skin resurfacing and laser techniques help in triggering the collagen cells to regenerate the cells and produce enough collagen to recover the damage. Further, dermal fillers are also used but they are not permanent and may leave you nowhere if you need to get your skin back to normal.
Micro-needling and UV equipment may also help in generating the collagen on the skin and may help in effective scar removal. Though some these methods work for those who can bear the cost and their skin allows them to adapt to these methods.
