Thank you for your query. You should go in for a TCA peel. Glycolic peel 20% is a mild peel whereas TCA is a medium depth peel and it will cater to pigmentation more and will even out the skin tone. Hope it helps.

Melarase creams after a glycolic peel

I would begin Melarase AM and Melarase PM creams immediately to reduce further discoloration of the skin after your glycolic acid peel. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles
