Chemical Peel to treat chicken pox scars
In my opinion, chemical peels will not treat chicken pox scars on the legs. The brown scars are hyperpigmentation most likely related to post inflammatory changes. This is a difficult problem to treat. There are lasers that might be attempted to treat areas of hyperpigmentation in order to remove pigment. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t. Topical bleaching agents may be effective but they are often do not work well. The depressed scars are easier to treat with the use of injectable fillers.
