Are raised bumps on my face with dark sunken centers a kind of acne ?

I have raised bumps on my face , that have dark sunken centres. They look like tiny volcanos. They do not come to a head , and they do not go away. I use OTC anti acne remedies from Neutrogena, and talc free powder makeup. I am 51 and am peri menopausal; I had regular acne as a teen and when I was pregnant , but hardly any in the past 20 years. Might this be a different kind of acne? If so, how do I treat it?

Good Day
It appears you have scratched off the tops of the acne or they have just appeared as shalow crater like lesions. It could be Molluscum contagoisum. Do you have any such lesions anywhere else in the body. The Dermatologist would recommend Trichloroacetic acid astringent or Cyrotherapy but after confirmation. Kindly show it to the Dermatologist. Avoid sun exposure. Wear sunscreen.
