Can Glycolic Peels Be Used on the Hands and Arms to Treat Age Spots?

Glycolic peels for pigmentation
Although high concentration glycolic peels may work for pigmentation, it is not my first choice. My first choice for a peel to treat underlying dyschromia and pigmentation is with a stronger peel called TCA. This is most effective but should be performed in experienced hands. Risks of scarring does exist with this peel.
