TCA CROSS, then erbium or INFINI RF
Like others, I prefer to use a combination of methods including TCA, eMatrix, erbium laser and INFINI to achieve the best results.
See attached web reference for how I treat scars in ethnic or darker skin types.
All the best,

You would benefit from a combination of hydroquinones and chemical peels for the pigmentation followed by eMatrix for the scars. It will take up to a year to improve all of the problems including texture, pigmentation, and scarring. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

A fractional laser such as the Lux 1540 or a Fraxel would be ideal for the treatment of your scars. It will take several treatments (3-6 typically) to remove the scars and regenerate new collagen to have smoother skin.
A chemical peel such as Jessner's/TCA is another option. The wound care is trickier afterwards, especially if your acne isn't under control before you begin.
