Don't think you really have hypertrophic scars, you might get more response in the regular scar forum.
I see scarred pores, and I think rolling and boxcar scars. I would do some research on the following treatments: TCA cross, microneedling, mild chemical peels, and possibly subcision. There is a FAQ thread in the main scar forum that will explain these treatments. This page will also have some rough estimate of prices and the process
http://www.acne.org/acne-scar-treatment.html. You can perform most of these treatments at home if you spend enough time learning how to do them safely. Chemical peels and TCA cross carry some risk of hyper/hypo pigmentation, so be thorough in researching them if you choose to perform them.
