Would chemical peel be best for getting rid of acne scaring?

Would chemical peel be best for getting rid of acne scaring?

Resurfacing: Skin resurfacing by a chemical peel, laser peel, or dermabrasion will be the only ways to improve on severe acne scaring.

This way the difference between the valleys and the mountains is decreased. Hope this helps. ...Read more
