I have boxcar.. rolling and icepick scars as well. Ive had it for 6 months and im worried. Im gonna be 15 years old. And goig to high school. I feel your pain. LIm sure theyll fill in . Its weird to give advice when your not so sure you want to believe it yourself sad.png

Its been a while since this post. 
You're very young so your skin has the ability to repair itself much better than those of us who are over 20.
From looking at my scars, I can now say that some of the superficial rolling scars do fill in on their own.
I'm not saying that I am now scar free but they do improve over time. 
Thanks. But how long did it take for you? Im very depressed

It took me about 3 months. I had a very superficially depressed round (lets call it a spot) that was about 0.5mm deep and about 3mm wide from acne. I was upset that i keep getting new depressed areas on my face. Last week I looked at the spot again carefully but it was gone. Bigger/Deeper ones may take longer to 'improve'. I know for the deep ones I'll have to get them surgically filled in. Still waiting for the blackheads to go away before I try invasive for the scars.

I don't really know about filling in, I find scars soften with time if you find the right skin care regimen and keep acne under control.  Lighting can make all the difference, sometimes I think my scars have disappeared then I'll catch myself in different lighting and yup they are still there.  I found using a gentle acid with my regimen has helped a lot as it keeps your skin cells turning over and stops a build up of cells which I think can make scars look worse, it also helps with blocked pores and brightness of skin.  ultimately I think over time you get more used to them and they almost become part of you.  Make up really helps though and there are some amazing products out there, it is trial and error but a good make up routine can really transform you skin.  There are loads of girls on youtube and instagram with acne and scars and their tutorials have helped me a lot.

I just noticed how sexist this sounded as I'm not sure if you are male or female, but there is a great make up artists called Wayne Goss who does tutorials aimed at women and men, he uses the products himself and honestly you'd never know he is wearing make up his skin just looks amazing so even guys can benefit from all the new products that can be used by men and women to cover redness and scaring.

Current Routine

 

AM: 

Cleanse: Merumaya cleansing balm, removed with damp hands and a cotton wipe.  Followed by la Roche Posse La Toleraine cleaner followed again by rinsing with damp hands, patting my face and a cotton wipe
Tone: Pixi glow tonic, simply apply some to the palm of my hands and pat on my face

Moisturise: Aveene rich, or light moisturising lotion (oil free) spf 20

Topicals:  Vitage protect and perfect serum, after I moisturise now that it's coming into fall and winter

 

PM

Same as morning but occasionally will thrown in a priori aha cleanser and use Differin after I moisturise a few nights a week

 

Bliss aha mask once a week/every two weeks followed by Nuxe crème fraiche moisturising mask

 

Oral medication:  Cilest BCP

Supplements: No current supplements
 

Current make up: Various foundations depending on my mood, Estee lauder double wear light, Vichy Dermablend, Charlotte Tilbury and Skin 79 BB cream, NARS creamy concealer or Naked concealer, Dollish CC cream for days when I don't want to wear foundation and Jane Iredale mineral powder to finish.  For some colour I use tea to tan By Terry, it's water base tint to give me some colour and various cream and powder blushes (love my blushes) currently loving Orgasm by Nars for a pop of colour on my cheeks and Vita Liberata mineral tan is amazing for the summer

Tools: Sigma F80 Kabuki for foundation or Real Techniques beauty blender and pretty much every other real techniques bruses for the rest of my make up
