Just give them time to settle. They're most likely caused from having something poke into them for a long period of time.

I work for a furniture company. Some of the guys that do repairs use a hairdryer.

a hairdrier? hmmm dunno what that could do.

It could do a lot. Helps with wrinkles and loosens fabric and leather.

I would let it sit, ive done the same thing to my seats with my tools and they all just eventually dissapeared.
I know how annoying it is, my seats were perfect until my dad got in the car one day with a box cutter in his back pocket or something and put a big gash in the seat.

I talked to the uhpolsterer today. He's been doing leather for over 20 years. He said a hairdryer will work but it will take awhile. He said a dent is just a stretch in the leather. The heat will shrink the leather back. He uses a heat gun at work. Just don't hold it on the leather for too long. Work gradually and see it shrink. In the summer you could leave it out in the hot sun. The only problem he mentioned was if the foam behind it was damaged then you will always feel the depression unless that gets replaced.
