Question:

Can I use this treatment to remove eczema marks from my legs?

Answer:

Chemical peels can possibly cause even more pigmentation if used on the legs. It depends on the strength of the peel, and the skin type. Generally, olive and darker skin types tend to get pigmentation/marks more easily.

 

The best thing you can do here, is to keep your eczema under control to prevent further occurrence of the marks, and also we have a lightening cream that you could use to help speed the removal of the marks. It is, however, a prescription product, so you will need to come in to see us first.
