My acne leaves behind dark spots. No holes or pits in my skin, seeing that I do not pop I am not left with any indentation in my skin.

These dark spots, are they classified as scars?

They do fade naturally over time, but the fade time is a year or for the smaller ones.

If I use peels will it help?

What about microdermabrasion ?

The dark spots are "post inflammatory hyperpigmentation".

Scars are permanent, and your marks probably aren't permanent. Most peoples' fade within a year.

Peels/microdermabrasion may help the appearance of your scarring, but everyones' results are different.
