Severe Chest and Back Acne Scars Treatment?

I am 49 years old and I have severe scarring on my chest and back from acne as a teenager and into my 20's. I have blackheads, keloid scarring and pits. I was told the blood flow to the back and chest ares is not as prevelant as to the face so not all the same treatments are available. How can I improve the skin on my back and chest scarred from severe acne?
