Acne scars have traditionally been ver difficult to repair. The only good options are ablative laser, fractional laser, and scar excision depending upon the severity of the scarring.

Micro needling can help with scars (adding PRP helps even more), fractionated lasers are better, but more expensive. A less invasive (but slower results) process would be laser genesis to the scars. If they are depressed you can use needle subcision or fillers to improve the appearance. Improving your acne will prevent further scars, see your doctor for possible treatments, antibiotics or creams.
