What Are My Options for Scar Treatment/Removal? (photo)

Hi, I have acne on my nose, with hypertrophic scars, sunken scars and pit scars. My nose is extremely oily still currently have spots of reds. I use retina A 0.025, and ocassionally glycolic acide. I did Mixto 1 year ago, and due to the had found that that I am left with more scars on my right nose due to more clogged pores. I also have a skin picking problem. Any suggestion on what I can do to impove the scars? And how far can the scars improve? Is skin grafting required?

These scars are very difficult to improve.  One option may be the fractional co2 skin resurfacing treatment spaced one month apart x 3.
