For my old acne scars, wondering if a chemical peel would help to lessen it or remove it?

In brief: Sure

It i a great idea .
There are all grades of peels. As far as removal it depends on the type and severity of your scars. Ice pick scars are the hardest to deal with and the least helped by peels.

In brief: Depends

Every case is different.
In general, lasers and chemical peels are better for superficial acne scars. Deeper scars typically involve other therapies including subcision, cross tca, medical roll cit, dermabrasion and other treatments, including prp.
