What to do with acne scars?

Hey everyone, I noticed that I have a big issue with scars rather than actual acne, I have scars from popped, damaged pimples, do you know any good creams which will help me to get rid of acne scars? I just want cream names, please don't hit me up with natural remedies, they don't work

what kind of scars are they? can you upload a pic?
well, if they are red scars you might try 10% glycolic acid (lotion, cream or gel) ..
if its any kind of pitted scarring, thats going to be a lot harder to treat with topical treatments. if your scarring is not too deep try retinal. the strongest over the counter that i have found is mychelle remarkable retinal serum. http://www.mychelle.com/Remarkable-Retinal-Serum-1oz?sc=7&category=37802 but really, unless its pretty minor, you would probably need to have a laser, peel or tca.

it looks more of an eczama in the picture but trust me they're all scars, left cheek and right cheek

Banish Acne Scars Kit?  Are you kidding me?  

That stuff is preposterously priced rollers that you can get elsewhere for literally 1/5 of the price.  They're another prime example of a business gouging desperate people who aren't sophisticated in their knowledge of acne scars and the appropriate treatments.  I would highly caution against anyone buying their stuff.  It is essentially repackaged rollers probably sourced from China, like MOST of the rollers on the market.    

Save your money and buy a decent roller elsewhere.
