Although there are thousands of creams available in the market, Mederma and Vita-K prove to be the best when it comes to dark spots removal.

Apart from home remedies, chemical peels are highly used in the industry when it comes to removal of dark spots on legs or body.

Generally, this process is done in a certified clinic where an expert applies gel on the dark spot and leaves it for some time. Once your skin starts burning, you can wash off the gel using water. Follow this remedy for 3-4 months for the best results. Also, you should prevent exposing your skin to direct sunlight for several weeks after using the chemical peel treatment.

Generally, you will need to take steroid injections after 2-3 weeks from your first appointment.

Steroid injection is effective only on small patches and is not useful on larger areas of skin.
Scrubbing or exfoliating is an important task that every person should opt in order to get rid of the dark spots on legs.
