TCA Peel for Back Acne Scars?

Is it safe to get a TCA peel of 30% on my back for acne scars? This is going to be my first time using any kind of peel. I think I should use a stronger peel since it is for my back and my scars don't look deep, but neither light. So is 30% a good idea?

30% TCA is a good peel to start with for backs

Yes, it is a good strength to start with but do expect to do 3-4 peels and go up or down depending on the results of the last peels. Backs have tougher skin and usually take several peels to make a noticeable difference.
