Scars after peels
If you truly have scars after chemical peels, then sometimes steroid injections may help. If you have pigmentation changes, then sometimes post-inflammatory changes can be treated with creams. Sometimes lasers can help as well.
Chemical peels, facial discoloration
If these are true scars,meaning surface irregularities [not just discoloration], the approach will depend on their age, location , & whether they are depressed or elevated. The discoloration is usually "post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation". This is best managed with sunscreens & bleaching agents.
