The scar treatment forum and red mark forum have great pinned posts with multiple suggestions. It will take a bit of reading and research; there's a lot of information out there. There are peels, retinoids, low strength acid preparations, needling, and many other options.

With an olive skin tone you should stay away from most invasive things. I do not know about the 'dermabrasion' kit; it's certainly misnamed. Microdermabrasion, sure, but not dermabrasion as that's much more intense, technically.

Some people have found nice smoothing of their scarring with an over the counter retinoid like Green Cream. That's what I use. I have also done a TCA peel (not recommended for darker skin tones!!!!), and a TCA CROSS treatment.
