Acne And Peel Damage

This looks like you have active inflammatory cystic acne with pigmentation that needs to be treated.  I would put you on isotretinion and do a combination of light peels and clear and brilliant laser to help clean up the pigmentation, with lightening creams.  After the acne is gone which will take 5-6 months, then I would consider a resurfacing laser for scars.  But for now, you need the acne treated and you should see cosmetic dermatologist as soon as possible.  Best, Dr. Emer.
