Jessner peel

It is very normal to have brown patches from Jessener peel as the skin darkens first before peeling. What is very important that you communicate with your doctor and make sure to do a follow up to avoid any complications.

Also staying out of sun and using sunscreen is imperative to avoid hyperpigmentation.
