Thanks for posting your query.
What you are referring to as deep marks are scars. That means that there is loss of tissue in that area.
No creams or lotions can cure it. Laser would be the best mode of treatment.
That would not completely erase the scars but will definitely bring an improvement.
Please let me know if you have any queries.
