Dark acne scars- which is best, chemical peel or home treatment?

Dark acne scars are a result of some post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. Controlling future breakouts better will help minimize the dark marks. A treatment regimen with skin lighteners and chemical peels every few weeks will help fade the dark spots.
