Can a 35% TCA peel smooth out Grade II scars (mostly from picking, not acne)?

I know it won't bring back the pigment (though it may help them blend in better), but can a 35% TCA peel smooth the shallow indent? Most people don't notice them but I can see the indents in the right lighting conditions and it really bothers me.
