No: It's shiny and may make them less visible, but it won't touch them in the long-run. I'm really sorry that you ended up with acne scars. This is the 21st century and all acne is manageable with scientific medicine. Today's practitioners use fillers, microsurgery and lasers with fair results.

Bleach: These self-cure in a month or two, but you can speed this with a hydroquinone bleach. Don't overdo it or you'll end up with a mess. Best wishes.

First control acne: Acne is a complex disease treated with a variety of approaches ranging from topical anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, as well as hormonal, medical regimens and surgery. Each case is individually treated and it is difficult to recommend a single cure. See a dermatologist first.
