I have had a chemical peel done on my inner thigh to lighten the area but now it's darker. What do I do?

you will need a series of lighter peels, skin lightening, microsecond yag laser to get improvement. Best, Dr. Emer.
Post peel hyperpigmentation
It sounds like you have post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This is going to require the help of a skin care expert and may involve both medical grade lightening products. Do not do any "energy based" treatments to this region until you have used these skin conditioning products for 8 to 12 weeks, or you will likely get MORE hyperpigmentation in the area. Consider going to one of Dr. Obagi's offices, which are in your area.
