I've been considering skin resurfacing, but there are too many choices. What is the best method? Laser? Chemical peel? Facial? I have relatively good skin, except for a couple of indented scars and uneven tone. I'm nervous about any treatment. I don't want to damage my skin to fix a few irregularities.

IPL provides safest immediate results.
Fractionated laser treatments like Fraxel re:store can help
There are many very safe techniques to improve skin tone such as chemical peels and light therapies however for indented scars, you may need a treatment that goes a little deeper to stimulate collagen renewal. Fractionated lasers are the best way to improve what you have mentioned above. Fraxel Dual ReStore is a laser that uses microscopic laser beams They are safe and use a controlled depth to eliminate sun damage and improve skin texture. That would be the best way to go.
