What Kind Of Scars Do I Have? Or Are They Even Scars?

Hey guys,

tho my skin does not break out too often (expect around that time of the month when it goes crazy), even the smallest pimple (which isnt that small) leaves a mark on my skin for what seems like forever. Aside from the occasional few peoples, this is what I have left on my skin. But I don't know if they are scars or simply hyperpigmentation or what.

What do you guys think? Does anyone else have these? How do I get rid of them?

It may not seem that bad but the pictures were taken on an iphone...so it's not great quality.

PS---I do exfoliate often and I'm using garnier's clinical dark spot corrector and haven't seen much improvement from either.

Hyperpigmentation, may have some slight indentations. These could fill up in time, but if not look up dermarolling...

AHAs help with red marks, chemical peels (Lactic Acid preferably - but do thorough research) too.. They could remove the scars completely if shallow enough
