Doctor

A:   Post-acne scars and blemishes are usually treated by a Dermatologist after fresh acne eruptions have stopped. The treatment modalities differ from case to case, ranging from mild chemical peels to dermaplaning. Dermabrasion and dermaplaning help to "refinish" the skin's top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. The treatments soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, giving the skin a smoother appearance. Dermabrasion is most often used to improve the look of facial skin left scarred by accidents or previous surgery, or to smooth out fine facial wrinkles. Dermaplaning is commonly used to treat deep acne scars. I suggest you to visit your treating doctor for further advice in this regard.
