Your choice: Silcone and a roller... You're welcome to try it. If you want a more reliable result that actually lasts, your dermatologist can probably inject a filler, or may have something else to offer. Truth be told, many (maybe most) of us guys have a few acne scars. Nobody cares, some folks think it gives you character, and what you do with it is a personal decision. Jet li (photo) kept his.

Not likely to help: Scar away is not likely to help with an indented scar. This type of treatment is usually only helpful to help scars fade in redness or sometimes for hyperpigmentation.

Scar gels: Under the direction of a physician, scar gels not available otc can help diminish scars. Will not usually help with depressions. Could make it worse.
