Acne on forehead,acne pits with hyper-pigmentation around it

Hello, I had got acne on my forehead 6 months back which developed into acne pits with hyperpigmentation surrounding it.. I tried various treatments like dermaroller, ipl, microderma, frezor for acne pits and have done chemical peel and have been using various pigmentation lightening creams since 6 months but nothing is working.. I am pretty much fed up now as the pigmentation is very hyper and the pits are just not getting filled..What treatment should i go for both the problems to get it cured in a month.. please do reply

Well if you have tried all these treatment modalities I feel there should have been some improvement.
Best thing to do is to compare your previous pictures with the present one.The reason being we need to find out that amongst all these procedure which one gave encouraging results and continue with it.
If you are still not satisfied you can go for fillers for the scars.
It might be a deep pigmentation which is stubborn.I suggest you to meet a cosmetologist for further guidance
