What exactly happened to my face to make it 3 shades darker?

I don't know, Being african american, I was a light brown skin color,but ever since I started getting acne & scars, It's turned into a very nasty dark skin color.There's nothing wrong with being dark skinned but I really want my even tone back because it looks unven and discolored.It looks like my face is dented, I can't really explain it..... When I stretch my skin, I can see my original skin tone but when I stop, it's back to the dented darker color..... Is there anything to correct this???

Could be macules - marks left behind from acne. On dark skinned people, they appear as darker marks. On white people, they are red. Either way, they do fade, but can take many months to fade.
