Acne scars are tough because you have to be careful not to cause hyper/hypo pigmentation. If you are too aggressive with your peels or other treatments you can cause big problems. I would suggest using something mild as far as a scrub goes and then a product that is used to heal that you sits well on your skin. I know I used a product that was a micro dermabrasion as well as a gentle moisturizer with spf to make sure I did not get a reaction to the sun after the dermabrasion. I would recommend you try something simillar to see if it works for you.

Seconded, be careful not to be too aggressive, the damage you can do if you go about scar treatment the wrong way can be worse then the original problem. I've lurked these forums for awhile and at least a few people here have had that experience.
