There's no magic unfortunately. Scrubbing harder is a bad idea.

Time and makeup. Red light helps too.

Basically your skin is healing and remodelling and dumping extra blood there while it does that.

The marks usually fade in a 2-3 months, but can take 2+ years (very rarely, depending on how bad the original infection was- so YMMV).

If your willing to try 100% Aloe Vera on your scars then go for it.
