Is It Better to Use Mederma Early for New Pockmarks?

Will Mederma rubbed into a new acne pock mark get rid of the pock mark? I just got an acne pockmarks just under my chin, and want to know if Mederma used as directed will get rid of the pock mark?

Mederma won't do anything

Mederma does close to nothing.  In a blinded prospective study against placebo, Mederma did nothing. Don't waste your money, honestly. Acne scarring is very similar to this kind of depressed chicken pox scar.
