Hi there and I am glad you listed your ethnicity as skin typing is extremely important in assessing the type of treatment or procedure that can be performed safely. With your skin type since you most likely fall in the skin type 5 category, I would stay away from IPL and recommend to start oral medication for the acne and possible lightening treatments. It is important to choose a clinic that is versed in ethnic skin patient treatments and can preform laser and pigmentation correction such as topical HQRA
Chemical Peels and some others to safely help with pigmentation and scarring for your skin type.
These treatments and medications need close monitoring and follow ups with the prescribing physician and must be done in an experienced clinic setting to avoid any unwanted side effects such as hypo-pigmentation.
Hope this is useful.
Treating acne and acne scars.
A picture would be helpful. Sounds like you have been on good skin care. I would try chemical peels as well. For the scarring, Infini seems to be the best in my hands. Other options include PRP, subcision, laser resurfacing, TCA Cross.
An evaluation by a Cosmetic Dermatologist will be helpful for addressing the different types of acne vulgaris, pigmentation and scarring, if applicable. A Cosmetic Dermatologist can also help discuss any food triggers or environmental triggers that you may have.
I hope that you found this helpful,
