What you have described are called hypertrophic scars. On the nose and chin pimples leave hypertrophic scars. On the cheeks and forehead they leave atrophic scars that look like holes in the skin. Hypertrophic scars can be removed by radio frequency abablotors or by a surgical mode Carbon dioxide laser. They have to be removed in 3 to 4 sessions spaced at an interval of 1to 2 months. Scars are permanent marks and will not go with creams or on their own. They need some procedures as mentioned above. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
