In brief: Raised scars
The scars need to be evaluated to determine the best treatment options.
If there is any evidence of a keloid or hypertrophy, you may consider injecting the scar with a medication (e.g., steroid). Laser treatments may also help such as resurfacing lasers.

If early after your braskout, i would give it some time to resolve.
If these are old, you may respond to a variety of resurfacing techniques ranging in degree of aggressiveness from steroid injection on up to surgery. Non-surgical methods such as laser may also provide another option.
