Topical treatments for the body are beneficial for photoageing as well as for specific disease processes, such as scars or striae. Every patient should topically apply photoprotectants in order to prevent photodamage to the skin. Tretinoin can improve body skin and has a documented use in striae. Alpha-hydroxy acids can restore body skin when used on a regular basis. Antioxidants may be of benefit. Scars can be improved with a variety of topically applied agents ranging from silicone gel sheeting to super-potent topical steroids. Chemical peeling for the body can improve the skin with the use of alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids. While topical therapy can improve body skin, adjunctive surgical therapy may be needed to correct body skin disorders or concerns fully.
