I'd probably wait to treat the scars until after you've got your acne well under control. Reason being, some of these treatments can worsen acne. If you must go ahead, then I'd do treatments that are less likely to worsen the acne. For example, taping would probably be ok whereas a topical such as CP Serum could break you out further.

i once heard that if u rub aloe vera leaf on young scars (like under 5years) they'll improve dramatically, dunno if this is true, i've personally never tried it but your 15 your scars can't be old yet so i'd give it a shot
