Acne scarring in darker skin

There are no home remedies for this. You need to see a doctor and get put on prescription medication to improve the acne and associated hyperpigmentation. The scarring needs energy based devices such as the Infini or laser resurfacing. Other methods include: PRP, TCA Cross, subcision, Bellafill.

Acne Scars

It appears from your photos that you have deep acne and scars that need to be addressed by a board certified dermatologist. You will benefit from several sessions of eMatrix.  Best, Dr. Green

Home remedies for pitted pick, ice pick, box car scars

There is no home remedy that I know of that will get rid of that. Even a traditional resurfacing may do only subtle improvement. You need multiple methods to test the different aspects of your scars.
