Facial and body acne scars

I've experienced acne on face, back, chest, shoulders, arms and chest. Now that it has been a year and only scarring is left I'm planning to go for Chemical peeling.

Facial acne scarring is redness in shaving area, and I guess I will need some fillers in the shaving area.

As for the body i'm suffering from hypertrophic scars (their colour is kinda brown).

Acne scarring, especially my back's and arms' have affected my life very badly, I'm looking to do anything to get red of them.
Please give me advices on what I mentioned above. thanks!
