ViPeel or TCA Peel for my skin texture, tone, and sun damage? (photo)

I am a 39 yr old white female with fair skin. I want to even out my tone, texture, and fade dark patches, freckling, and post acne redness. I am scheduled for a ViPeel but am wondering if a TCA peel is more suitable for my goals. My goals: even skin tone, lightening of freckles, lightening of redness from previous acne (the result of my own picking). Attached are photos.

Chemical peels tend to give more consistently good results.

A medium TCA or 6 light TCA peels I think would do more than a few vipeels as far as getting your skin looking better. Sincerely,
