The type of chemical peel is not as who you choose to do it

Many different treatment options can be used to lighten the skin including chemical peels and various topical regimens.  However, in the areas that you are wishing treatment, the risks and irritation concerns are much higher. Make sure you choose a provider who has the knowledge to develop a plan to treat your individual needs like a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
