for icepick scars and pitted ones...i do not think that it will help or make it worse..but for red spots and dark brown spots..i find that when i get tanned it hides the spots and then as the tans slowly goes away i also find that the spots do too...so when im back to my original skin color, my scars are not as bad as they were before the tan (or sometimes the really small spots are gone)...

but thats jus tmy experience..not sure about anyone else tho :)

yeah mine definately fade. if the pimple was only there for like 3-4 days then no real damage was done to the skin and the sun isnt gonna make it any worse. if they were large sore type pimples i wouldnt do it though.
