It is difficult to give you a specific recommendations without a picture and knowing details of your peel.  In many cases, hyperpigmentation after a peel can be improved with a skin lightening product such as hydroquinone.  Hydroquinone is usually safe on dark skin types and can help lighten areas of hyperpigmentation over time.
