Treat acne first: Chemical peels are helpful for getting rid of scarring after acne has been properly treated. Otherwise you'll just continue to have acne, and you're back where you started. So see a dermatologist, get your acne under good control, then talk to him or her about chemical peels or other options, such as laser dermabrasion.
