After going through acne for 3 years, I found out my own regimen which has cured me, and then I found Acne.org's regimen soon after. But after the acne has gone, these little buggers are around. They are quite small and I am wondering if they will fill in during time, or if they are permanent? Acne just keeps getting worse and worse. I dont wish it on my worst enemy.

you have some redness, hyperpigmentation which will fade with time, sometimes more then we would like (actually ALWAYS more then we would like)...

 

you have very mild acne scarring which a series of peels may address, like TCA, but go slow on these if you do them yourself

 

good for you to have beat acne back to this point!

Thanks..But would these scars go away on themselves if I leave them? I am currently using AHA+ in hopes of removing the hyperpigmentation, but would this remove the scars as well?

AHA will not get rid of them, at least completely. Depending on when you got these scars and how old you are, it might still heal (although not 100%). Scars improve up to a year after you first got them.

I have had these for maybe a year and a half, but could be from newer pimples. I got rid of my acne around april, and its when I noticed these scars. It is almost more demoralizing having these scars than acne itself. I do not want to apply anything at home, such as a TCA Peel. I am hoping that the AHA will improve the texture around these scars. Is there any treatment by the dermatologist that would get rid of these icepick scars?

They may go but would take time. For safe side, you can keep a track of your diet in order to be aware of intaking essential vitamins and minerals that may help in healing them internally. For external treatment, you can go for simple invicible scars. It's hypoallergenic, so , safe to use.
