There is no single treatment that will do it all for you.   First of all you need to make sure you are on optimal home skin care.  I would highly suggest you purchase a Clarisonic Ultrasonic skin cleansing brush with whatever system you are using and be sure your night time program is using Retin A.  A combination of appropriate peels to exfoliate and open your skin as well as to focus on pigmentation alternated with a fractional laser treatment to smooth the skin and diminish scars would be ideal.  Good luck!
