Which Peels are best for African-American skin?

I have noticeable patches of dark discoloration on my face due to now-healed eczema and a sprinkling of small, flat brown moles. I think a Vi Peel is the answer but I'm not sure. Which gentler Peels cause excellent results in African-American skin? What are their pros and cons?

Peels for dark skin

I have found the VI peel to be very effective for patchy discoloration in patients with dark skin.  I will take 4 to 6 treatments but those that have stuck with the treatment regime have been very happy.

I hope that helps.  Best regards.
