Question What's best for an "orange" face?

I'm 24 now and those huge pustule-like inflammed pimples have generally settled down. What's left are scars, mostly on my cheeks and temples.

These scars are numerous and indented; rather like many pin-pricks on my cheeks. At first glance, they look like open pores but they're actually indentations with seemingly dark discoloration at the "heart" of the pits ==> like the exterior of an orange.

What treatments (no matter the cost) are most effective? I'm very very tired of hiding behind foundation and powder and feeling so self-conscious and inhibited when interacting with others! Pls help!

I have a few of these orange-peel spots too, they're kind of on top of my red marks, if that makes any sense. Only on my left cheek, though. I think theyre called ice pick scars. Anyway, I just ordered Elicina cream to help with these little scars and my minor indents, and I'm using Skinoren to bleach the red marks.

So hopefully the Elicina would help. Do some research on it.
