Light or superficial peels can improve the appearance of the skin. Superficial peels if repeated can improve some mild pigment problems and the overall appearance of the skin. Acne scarring probably won't be improved with superficial peels, the typical acne scars are at a much deeper level in the skin. Occasionally deeper peels, laser resurfacing or Dermabrasion may improve acne scarring.
