If the lesions in question are active acne breakouts, then you should see your Family Physician about acne treatments available. If this is scarring from previous acne, then there are several options available including chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser treatments.

Jason, Thank you for your question. 
 
It is difficult to answer without seeing the spots. Are the black spots scars from previous cases of acne? Or are they raised black blemishes?
 
Each would require a different type of treatment, and evaluation by a dermatologist would be my best advice to you.
