You can try dermaroller treatment as it helps stimulate the skin and actually produce a little bit more collagen and leave the skin looking smoother and brighter. Also, you can combine a mild chemical skin peel treatment with your dermaroller session to really improve the appearance of acne scars; resulting to a smoother face with less visible acne scarring. You can check these helpful links below to understand more about each of the non-surgical cosmetic procedure:

Ice pick scars can respond well to needle or wire subcision. Derm introduces a wire to release scar where it is 'tethered' and injects a dot of filler.
