Leg Scars and Spots Still Present After Peels

I've had spots and scars on my legs since I was little. I had skin peels but they are still there. What can I use for scar removal?

Scars, dark spots

If your concern is dark spots, they could be easily helped with a combination of depigmenting creams & a series of microdermabrasions.

If you have scars, depending on how they look, i.e. if it is raised or depressed or has textural changes diffrent treatments can help improve them.

Melarase skin lightener for leg dark spots

If the spots represent true pigmentation rather than a birthmark, I would recommend a topical skin lightener such as Melarase AM and Melarase PM twice daily.
