In brief: Serious Rx

Red marks after acne lesions, and depressed scars that persist indefinitely, can't be treated by anything available to you.
The red is your skin healing. A dermatologist or plastic surgeon has fillers, lasers or microsurgery for scars. Topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated keeps most new lesions at bay; you physician can add a supplemental Rx if required.
