Fading?: Acne is a serious, chronic disease that is a serious personal and professional liability. If there has been scarring and new lesions are still forming, the person needs to be under the care of a competent physician. Scars can be made less visible by a physician who has access to fillers, dermabrasion, a laser, and/or microsurgery. Please don't try to handle this yourself.

No such cream: Acne scar varies a lot from ice pick to rolling scars. They can not be removed by any cream. Tretinoin helps with laser treatment.

Different options: Are available... First, you need to get control of the acne itself, if you haven't already. Depending on the size, depth and number of scars you can consider peels, laser treatments, dermabrasion, etc. Seek consultation with a facial plastic surgeon.

Who's the best?: The best acne scar surgeon is someone who actively takes an interest in how best to treat your scars. Listening to you and what bothers you, categorizing your scars, looking at the palette of therapies and choosing the best therapies to deal with them. Laying out the timeline, setting reasonable expectations, talking about improvement, rather than perfection. Then doing the best he or she can do.

Can't be done: Acne is a serious, often disfiguring disease, and I am especially sorry that yours was not treated appropriately by real scientific rx that's available. Anyone offering a pill or topical application for the scars is scamming you. A dermatologist can make acne scars less conspicuous using a laser, filler, surgery, or dermabrasion.
