Acne scars, used benzoyl peroxide, olive oil and others. No effect. Treatment?

Hello Sir I have been suffering from acne & therefore, acne scars for about 7 years. I m approaching 21 and I ve gone through benzoyl peroxide & typical acne treatments regarding acne. It worked a bit but didn t work up to my expectation. I m using olive oil these days but even olive oil isn t coming up with much results. Please give a remedy that requires less consistency. Thank you.
