You scars do not seem severe, they are more rolling scars. You could look at treatment options for rolling scars other than dermarolling as well.

PM me if you have more questions.
If you have the money ($3k) I'd suggest doing something like Fraxel Re:pair.
Oh yeah, dermarolling also takes a long time (like 6 months to a year) to start seeing results.

Edit: I looked at your other pictures in the gallery and I didn't see any rolling scars at all! I guess I just mistook shadows or hyperpigmentation for scars. Maybe you could just get a TCA peel (by a professional) or do dermarolling if you feel like it. In any case, I wouldn't really judge my advice since I'm only figuring out what to do myself.
Best of luck!

@Trador: It is interesting that subcision has come up a lot for my scars, I hadn't considered it before. I wonder which is more cost effective- laser vs. subcision? I don't have the balls to needle my face. Just. too. scary.
@sanjoseskin: You're right the last thing I want is more damage. At this point I'm just considering options though, I won't be doctor hunting until I move back to the US. Thanks for your input!
