You sound like a perfect candidate for dermarolling. Just make sure you do your research before starting at home in order to know what to do and expect etc. There are some great forums related on here that could help. I think 0.5mm dermaroller is recommended length for mild to moderate scaring, and you can order on ebay and amazon, just make sure it is a reputable source. If you decide to do it, take photos of your progress. All the best.

Depending on the severity of your scars then lotions may be somewhat beneficial. However from what I have read is that there is limited effectiveness of creams and lotions for physical acne scarring, and claims that cure acne scarring can be somewhat far-fetched. Generally speaking, acne scarring needs new collagen formation in order to regenerate damaged skin. However in saying all this you are welcome to try, and see what works for you.
