Darker skin commonly suffers from hyperpigmentation (dark marks). Chemical peels and microdermabrasion are excellent for the purpose of fading the marks and evening out the skin.

However, if your skin-care provider doesn’t have experience with darker skin tones, I don’t recommend you proceed with the treatments. For example, at my medical spa we pretreat darker skin with sunblock, like our Urban Skin Rx Dermshield All Skin Sun Protection Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30, and melanin-regulating ingredients, like kojic acid, hydroquinone, and arbutin for two to three weeks before performing a chemical peel, to ensure a safe and effective treatment.

Even-toned, smooth skin is accessible to everyone—but be sure to do your research before committing to a plan.
