Obagi Blue Peel or Vitalize Peel for superficial scars and acne marks?

I'm 25 and I have superficial acne scars and mostly acne marks on my face. I'm only looking to get a chemical peel mostly for the marks. Should I get the obagi blue peel or the vitalize peel? I'm south Asian so I don't know if that matters?

Chemical Peel

Thank you for your question. Obagi is an excellent choice, however, it is important that the procedure match the patient's needs. Please consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to discuss your candidacy for each methodology.

Best wishes,

Obagi Blue Peel or Vitalize Peel for superficial scars and acne marks?

Thank you for sharing your question.  Though Vitalize peels can make a nice improvement in skin tone, texture, and fine lines most acne scars require a deeper peel to achieve improvement and I would favor the Blue peel.  Hope this helps.
