I've done a bit of research on both of these since I'm considering a procedure like this myself. The red Acne scars can be treated topically if you want to try that first- I'm using Murad's skin lightening serum with Hyroquinone ($60) for some hyperpigmentation and Acne scarring and I've had good results fading the areas (about 50% lighter after three weeks). But you were talking about scarring too and this product won't do a thing for that.
If your Acne pitting is really deep you might not be satisfied with the results of microdermabrasion since it only blasts the top layer of skin. There's a "deeper" version of the procedure called dermabrasion but be ready for a big pricetag and quite a long recovery time. It's a pretty major procedure where risk factors like infection and scarring from the aggressive procedure itself!
Chemical peels really interest me but kind of freak me out. You're essentially burning the top layers of you skin off with acid so then the dead skin will peel off- hopefully revealing nice new skin underneath. I read that this isn't really that good for deep lines/acne pitting/or other deep scars.
A lot of plastic surgeons/dermatologists will do a free consultation with you and go over all of the details. They might also have some before and after photos. Internet research is always a plus but there's a lot of garbage on the web, too. I would definitely make sure you talk to a real pro (not just some salon on the corner) before you make a choice about any of these! Good luck and hope this helped a lil!! : )
