Early scarring


My son, who is 16, had a pretty bad acne breakout this summer. About 5 weeks ago he started Tactu cream, which I think is the Canadian version of Epiduo ( an adapalene BP combo). The acne has improved a lot and is healing.  As the acne has reduced in inflammation , what I initially thought was just post inflammatory erythema, is in fact some depressed scarring. 

Given that the acne has just begun to heal, is there a chance that some of the pits will fill in slightly? What treatments if any are suitable for early scarring? 

After going through the emotional pain of my own skin issues, it’s 100 times more painful when it’s your child and I would be so grateful for any suggestions you may have. I’ll ask him if it’s ok to post a photo. Thank you.
