In brief: 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.
