Question: I saw an interview with a doctor who said that a chemical peel can be used not only on the face, but the neck and hands as well. What’s different about treatment on the face as opposed to the rest of the body?

Answer: In general, the face is much more vascular (has more blood flow) than other parts of the body. This may be one of the reasons why chemical peels may work better on the face/neck than arms/legs/hands.
