well you should wait and see... I'm not too sure about the depression scar part. I don't have any acne scars besides hyper pigmentation marks but I know people that have that. Some of them have faded and some of them have remained.

My derm was also optimistic. I have shallow scars that are mostly noticeable in certain lighting. I brought them up and he said it's really nothing to worry about. I'm pretty much set on decreasing red marks from acne and then focusing in more on the scars.
