What is best peel for skin scars and pigmentation?
I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a proper in person evaluation. you would do well with laser nonablative treatments (fraxel or clear and brilliant) or radiofrequency treatments (sublative) as they help acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation. Peels will not address all these issues, at least not ones safe on your skin type. Microneedling and topical skin care would also be very useful. Best, Dr. Emer.
I recommend seeing a board certified dermatologist who practices cosmetic dermatology for a personal consultation.
With chemical peels and laser resurfacing, the punishment should fit the crime. Your issues are not severe. I think lighter peels with no down time will be very helpful. This would match chemical peels in the TCA 10-20% range. It should also be combined with a home skin care program that is simple to accomplish and not overly expensive.

Chemical peels for hyperpigmentation
I find that medium skin tones respond well to both glycolic
and salicylic acid peels. One peel
unfortunately is not enough to see optimal results. It takes about 4-6 peels to achieve best
results, which will include an evening out of discoloration and a healthy glow.
