In brief: No

Chemical peel, ultrasound and other ways of manageing skin conditions essentially are unable to cause cancers especially of skin.
The latter is causes by carcinogenic exposure, chronic exposure to ultraviolet light, and skin lesions such as cutaneous fistulas of long standing duration where viral involvement may be responsible.
