How well does a chemical peel work for removing old scars?

i have heaps of old scars on my legs. I have olive skin and my scars are dark. I want to get a chemical peel but first i want to make sure that it is safe before I save up money. How much does it cost? Has anyone here had one for their legs? If so, did it work? I'm so stress about my skin cuz I can't wear any shorts or skirts 🙁 my old scars about 10 years old? help?

    IF your scars are just discolorations then possibly yes. However, if your scars are indented or raised then I would say no. You should go talk to a plastic surgeon about your options. Most will give you a free consultation. IF they say a chemical peel will work you might have success with home remedies such as lemon juice, buttermilk, and exfoliation as well. GOOD LUCK!

    Removes the dead layers of your skin. Think about Fraxel laser but BE CAREFUL with it. Another option would be microdermabrasion. It’s lovely.
    Other options Retinol
    Mederma or scar gel (not very useful for old scars but i named them so you know)
    Anywhere you go to have it done, DO NOT go to DR. Dover in Boston. He is terrible but he has written books about scar revision….I had terrible results from his laser.

    If the injury is serious and the scar is deep, the scars are sure to be left. You shall only to control the infection and take the cosmetology means to reduce the scar.

    Five methods to reduce the scars:1. Massage method: Please use your palm to massage the scars, three times a day, every 5-10 minutes. This method is best for the wound which just scab off.
    2. Ginger friction method: Please use ginger to gently graze at the scars so as to inhibit the growth of granulation tissue.
