At one time you were told to never go up faster, then you bubbles. Then people who we're removing fish from deep water to keep from blowing their swim blatters were stopping at different depths to let the fish adjust. After a period of time they found they felt by stopping and decoing on th way up.They felt better. My answer would be stop at different depths and take your time going up.

You should not use you bcd to ascend except in an emergency.  Generally, you should be able to kick your way to the surface from your safety stop.

Most good dive computer have an ascent gauge. You must ascend slowly till 15 feet and then do a 3-5 minute stop to decompress. As you ascend you must empty air to avoid going too fast.

Read your computer manual.

You should remain neutrally buoyant during your ascent, and rise no faster than your computer indicates. When neutrally buoyant, it should only take minor fining to start your ascent.

Remember that any air in your BCD will expand as you get shallower, so continue to adjust your buoyancy by letting small amounts of air out of your BCD while ascending. (When properly weighted, you likely have very little or no air in your BCD by the end of the dive, so there is less air to manage on the way up.)

Read your manual. you vent air from your BCD during ascent. Ascend from your safety stop at a rate of 30 ft per minute or the rate your computer says which ever is slower. Swim to the surface then air up your BCD.
