No: I'm sorry you ended up with scars because your acne was not properly managed. A dermatologist can make these less visible with fillers, dermabrasion, microsurgery or laser treatment. Nothing you can use at home will help.

No: Honestly, deep acne scars are difficult to treat with our current methods. At best, even with a good laser resurfacing treatment or a chemical peel, 50% improvement would be considered a "good result". But Dermovate isn't one of the methods that work.
