edit (thanks Wynne..):

I think that if your scarring is really mild like you say, you should really consider not doing too many harsh things. There is always a chance (rather big in the case of acne scar treatments) you will make things worse, such as pigmentation changes, new scarring, longlasting hyperpigmentation. You really don't want this, you will hate it more than the few pores and scars you got now.

My advice would be to either use retin-a (don't if you have used accutane in the past) or use an AHA/BHA at night. These should slowly improve your skin bit by bit. If you want to go into treatments anyway I'd give a mild chemical peel a try, such as glycolic or perhaps a low % of TCA. You can read up on these peels online and do it yourself. TCA Cross -could- be an option, but this only works on certain scars. Do not go the laser/dermabrasion/cutting route. It's too much for just shallow scars. Besides, lasers especially, are expensive and you have no guarantee it will work.

Good luck!

Ziko, you're excessively harsh.

Original poster, I hope you find some good information in the pinned threads up above. As your scarring is mild, it's possible it can be ameloriated quite nicely. Just do some research and find what might work best for your scarring and skin color. Consult with some plastic surgeons and dermatologists as well.

Check into the possibility of continuing use of a topical retinoid. That can soften scarring very well.
