I'm an African American woman with brown spots, due to acne and hormonal changes from hysterectomy, and facial hair. How many peeling treatments will I need to achieve a clearer complexion? Please help. Thanks.

Chemical peels in darker skin
A series of 5-6 glycolic acid chemical peels spaced 3-4 weeks apart is a good starting point. Your dermatologist may complement this with a good topical cream regimen for bleaching the brown spots and/or laser treatments.
