How to remove acne scars?

I've had acne since I was 9 years old. Now I'm 17, and much of my acne has cleared up. However, I have a lot of acne scars... while I plan to visit a dermatologist in the near future, is there anything else I can do to heal the scars up faster? Please don't suggest makeup-- that doesn't help heal... show more I've had acne since I was 9 years old. Now I'm 17, and much of my acne has cleared up.

Please don't suggest makeup-- that doesn't help heal it. Also, I've tried lemon to lessen the appearance, and it didn't help.
Update: I have fair skin, and tanning would only darken the scars-- plus it's not good for your skin. =/
