Will chemicals peels improve my acne-pitted skin?

Depends. Acne pitting must be treated with deep peels or lasers. Superficial peels will not work b/c they do not penetrate deep enough. I usually recommend the pixel laser for this. Fillers can also help plump out the acne marks and subcisions can help pull the skin together to make the marks look less.
Usually not. Laser abrasion or dermabrasion typically do a better job on acne scarring than chemical peels, which work better on wrinkles and other forms of sun damage.
