Question chemical peel for acne?

My mom used a chemical peel recently and she loves it! My sister thought that maybe this would be good for her acne--I don't know much about this, but would it be a good idea since it sloughs away the top layer of skin to even it out? My sister has very uneven scars from severe acne.

Yes, it would be a good idea, but use a very GENTLE peel, like a 40% lactic acid peel. Search for "40% lactic acid peel" on google.
