Has Anyone Found Any Really Effective Treatment For Back Scarring?

Well, it's been quite a long time since I've been on these message boards, probably about two years.

Long story short, I had cystic acne for quite a while. Through dietary changes (no thanks to Accutane & other drugs), I was pretty much completely cured about 2-3 years ago. I've still got some scarring on my upper back, though. It's not horribly bad (certainly much better than it used to be), but if you get close enough, you can still see a good deal of shallow pitting & slight discoloration, still somewhat unattractive & I'm fairly self-conscious about it.

From everything I've heard from doctors & nearly everything I've read on here & other places online, there's no really effective treatment for back scarring. I've read about apple cider vinegar, etc. for minimizing redness, but I'm really more concerned with smoothing out the scarring. I'm not looking for 100% improvement, just anything that might help.

I'm guessing that probably I'm not going to get much / any helpful feedback on this, but I figure what the hell, I might as well throw this out there just in case.

Good luck to everyone out there with your skin.
