In brief: Usually not

Insurance typically will help with the management and control of acne infections, but do not often pay for the care of the scarring that results.

In brief: Unlikely

Insurance companies typically do not reimburse for treatments that are cosmetic in nature.
If there is a medically necessary reason for the treatment, insurance should reimburse for it.
