Thank you, TokyoGirl for the following information:

I came across an excellent publication on grading types and severity of acne scarring, as well as the best treatment approach for each type of scarring, a few months ago.

The document is long at over 120 pages. If you join Scribd, you can download the pdf. It's a great read and resource for anyone hoping to treat their scars. I hope you find it as useful as I have. http://www.scribd.co.../Acne-and-Scars
