Is There Any Way to Remove Many Pea-size Scars Within 3 Months? (photo)

I've had a huge problem with scaring easily. It doesn't help that I got bitten quite a bit by bugs. I have Asian skin and I also stay out of the sun. I take care of my skin now, but the scars are really bothering me. Is there any procedure you could recommend?

Insect bite scars and Melarase cream on the legs

Insect bite scars on the legs often become hyper pigmented and dark.  I would begin treatment with Melarase cream, followed by once monthly MelaPeels to lighten the skin and exfoliate the pigment.
