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.
