If you have very light acne scars, a superficial type of chemical peel for acne scars may be able to help. In addition to helping minimize light scars, this kind of peel treats enlarged pores and dull complexions.

The acids most commonly used in a chemical peels for acne scars include Trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Retinoic acid, and Salicylic acid, just to name a few.
