If the acne heals and leave a dark colored spot without any depression in the skin -it is called an Acne mark or Post Acne Hyperpigmentation.
Such Acne Marks can be treated with Topical Serums and various modalities like Micro-exfoliation of various kinds.
Acne Scars can be reduced to a great extent using various kinds of fractional lasers like the CO2 and Er: Yag Fractional resurfacing treatments.
