hello der
Different types of peels can help with acne and acne scaring. For overall improvement of acne and MILD scarring, glycolic acid peels at 20-70% can help. For acne that is comedomal (white heads, blackheads, congested skin), I would go for sal. acid peels. 18-23%.

Sal acid is a beta hydroxy acid and can be anti-inflammatory, even 23% sal acid is super safe in darker skin types.
kindly contact dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment.
