In brief: Best or safest

The best would be the deep peels and they should only be performed by a trained physician that would be the phenol peel.
It would help acne scars not wipe them out but will have downtime The safer method would be a series of medium peels they have limited downtime and are abet safer these would be the jesner plus tca 35% or even the less potent Vi peel for acne. You will need several
