Chemical peels do great for hands, feet and legs but usually need to be done a few times at 2-4 week intervals and followed up with a cortisone lotion, spf sunscreen and  bleaching cream.

Chemical peels for hands, legs and feet

Chemical peels can be applied to parts of the body other than the face to treat acne, blemishes and to improve the texture of the skin. Just avoid deeper peels. The skin cells in hair follicles are important in recovery after a chemical peel. The are fewer hair follicles on places such as the hands so is best to be more cautious.
