Green Peel for Acne Scars?

I've had acne for 10 years, and done 3 courses of Roaccutane. I've also had a course of 6 microderms and a few peels. I've been using Proactive solution for a year, which has kept the pimples away, but I'm now concerned about the scarring. I have mainly pits and small white lumps and bad sun damage all over. I have more wrinkles than most girls my age, and my face looks very tired and rough. Will the Green Peel would work for me?

You do sound like a good candidate for a green peel.  It will help with fine lines and also acne scars.  I would not expect your scars to resolve with one treatment.  When consulting your doctor, you should find out how many peels they think you will need to get satisfactory results.
