Treatment of Facial Scars and Acne
From what I can tell in the picture, it appears you still have a good amount of active acne as well as discoloration from the acne. I do see a few scars as well, but it is the acne and discoloration that appears to be the primary issue. If you are not already being treated by a dermatologist for your acne, I recommend you consult with one. There are oral and topical prescription and over-the-counter treatments which can improve your acne and prevent further discoloration and scarring. I find it best to address the scarring once the acne is better controlled. While difficult to see, it seems you may have a few depressed acne scars which would benefit from injectable filers.
