In brief: Good ? Tough answer

Scars are disruptions to the skin's normal layers, thickness, color and contour. They change through your lifetime due to the normal scar remodeling process.
Good products compliment this process like silicone gel, occlusive dressings, steroids, etc. The problem with deep pitting is that the scar pulls the skin into a deep pit. Precise excision is usually the best option to release them.

In brief: Many options

Scars mature and can continue to improve for up to a year. They are sun-sensitive and may become hyperpigmented with sun exposure.
The best way to treat a scar depends on the scar. Options include silicone gel, silicone sheeting, use of filler (for spot or crater-like scars), laser therapy, hydroquinone, dermabrasion, or kenalog (triamcinolone) injection, or surgical scar revision. See your plastic surgeon.
