Hyperpigmation Got Darker After VI Peel?

I had a VI peel 12 days ago and it seems that my hyperpigmentation got darker. Will this fade? The dark spots were the reason I got the peel. Now they are even more noticeable.

Having hyper pigmentation is possible after a Peel. Sometimes the first Peel will pull the deeper pigmentation out,your going to need a few more peels to give you the results your looking for. Using a bleaching cream in between peels can help further your results.
