In brief: 2 separate issues

Treat the active acne first.
See a dermatologist for a good treatment regimen if you have struggles. After the acne is under control treatment of scarring depends on exactly how deep the scars are. Treatment options include peels, lasers, dermabrasion and scar revision, or a combination of the above.

In brief: Fraxel

Fraxel with superficial chemical peels can control active acne and scar at the same time.
But the little hole may need more aggressive treatment such as tca or co2 laser.

In brief: Keep your face clean

Those little holes are dilated pores.
Pores are the opening of glands to the skin surface. When they are clogged with debris they appear bigger. However, some people just have very large pores. Keeping your face clean and using an antibacterial program is your best bet to minimize those holes.
