Post Hyperpigmentation vs. Scars

Does anyone know how to tell the difference between hyperpigmentation, which supposedly goes away, and scars, which supposedly don't? I'm entering a stage in which I am less worried with active zits but much more worried about the aftermath. My face has spots from old pimples and I'm wondering if any of these will go away or if they are permanent scars. Over my 4 years w/ acne I have noticed many once prominent markings, which I thought were scars, fade away so that gives me hope that it will all eventually fade away, but I'm not sure. I haven't really been able to ask my derm his opinion because I'm scared of what his answer will be, lol.

Any opinions?
