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.

Laser/dermabrasion: Laser resurfacing or dermabrasion (not to be confused with microdermabrasion) are the best ways to reduce the appearance of acne scars. However, neither method will completely get rid of the scars. They just diminish them.
