Treating Discoloration From Acne
Based on what I see in your pictures, it appears you have mostly discoloration (hyperpigmentation) from the acne lesions. This is very common, especially in darker skin types. In addition to treating the active acne, there are treatments that can help fade the dark spots, specifically topical RetinA (tretinoin) and hydroquinone which can both help to lighten the color. There are also office-based treatments such as Silkpeel Dermalinfusion which can help exfoliate the skin and improve the discoloration. I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist to discuss what will work best for your skin.

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation.
From your pictures, these are Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation due to acne. As PIH generally improves with time slowly, over months by itself but still you need treatment from a dermatologist for better results.
Topical hydroquinone & use of sun screen can help a lot.
Chemical peeling is another good option for pigmentory problems.
