Retinoic acid cream for peeling legs

Prescription retinoic acid cream, which is used for acne, can also be used anywhere on the body, except for sensitive, moist areas, to help peel and fade brown spots.  It does take time and you should avoid sun exposure.  Consult a dermatologist to see if this treatment would be best for you or if there would be other options.
