In brief: Acne scars

It is unlikely that your skin will be clear but it can be improved.
Treatment must be based on addressing the active disease (usually with oral retinoids and/or systemic or topical antibiotics and skin care regimen) and then using other methods to address the established scars. This can include peels, lasers, dermabrasion, surgery, grafts, fillers, grafts, etc.

In brief: See Skin Care Doctor

You should see a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon who treats skin problems.
They will treat you for the acne and the scars at the same-time with various creams and medications.
