Different Types Of Acne Scars Necessitate Different Types Of Treatments
There may also be a place for the use of a few droplets of Botox (or Dysport or Xeomin). Appropriately placed these agents, by reducing the contractile forces on the treatment sites, may allow for better healing of the sites treated with the aforementioned approaches and often contribute to longer-lasting results.
I agree that with my colleague who wrote that "there is no role here for peeling or lasers," including fraxels. The results of the latter tend to be inconsistent, variable and often subtle at best.
You would do well to seek consultation and treatment by a board certified aesthetic physician with particular expertise and experience in all forms of acne scar treatments.
You have some severe ice pick, box, and rolling scars. These can be improved with some excision and subcision. There is no role here for peeling or laser

A combination of fillers such as Restylane or Sculptra can help raise the depressed scars. Then lasers such as eMatrix and Fraxel can help correct the scars. Microneedling with PRP also help these scars heal more quickly. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
