Will the pitted acne marks heal fully?

PLEASE HELP

I am not sure what kind of scars those pitted acne marks are, and should I put mederma cream on the indentations?

 

Also will these pitted marks be permanent?

Should I go for laser treatment?

Is the big red mark a pimple or a scar?

probably not. TCA cross would be your best bet, but it won't improve 100%. It's usually a Bell curve with 25% and 80% improvement as 2 SD away from 0 and outliers on both ends

Maybe it’s the picture but I don’t see any indentations just red marks. From my understanding tca cross is for ice pick scarring, which this doesn’t look like.

Should I put mederma advanced on the scraped off areas? 

I am also not sure whether the big red mark is a pimple or a scar?

They go away with time but you can also do v beam laser. I’ve had some v beam laser sessions for my red marks and it’s helped to fade them. Just be careful what you put on post procedure as places try to get you to buy their “custom” creams. The first place I went to, this “silver” gel they told me to buy/use after gave me perioral dermatitis and actually caused way more scarring than what I came in there for. The second place has been awesome and I bought a gel from them for after care called “Lifeline Pro Plus Advanced Aqueous Treatment”. You don’t have to get something that expensive, just mentioning it if you have sensitive skin like me since it’s one I’ve tried and liked. Try and research what people use after v beam with good results as I’m sure there’s way cheaper options that work as well. 

 Not sure about the raised one though, sorry. I also have no experience with mederma.
