Have lots of acne/blackhead/scars. Tried proactive and many others, not working 100% are there better options that a dermatologist can provide to cure?

Improve not remove: Many options exist for cosmetic improvement and include anti-inflammatories, peels, exfoliation, lasers, resurfacing, bleaching, excision, grafting, fillers, and much more, scars vary in their severity and so do the treatments. See a plastic surgeon, dermatologist or ENT for options.
