Thanks for your query. Yes peels and lasers like ndyag help a lot in correcting the pigmentation. You should consult a dermatologist, as after proper examination the treatment plan can be decided for you. Hope it helps.

Treating Hyperpigmentation

There are many options for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation which include chemical peels, lightening creams and laser treatments.  Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation can take a long time to improve.  My recommendation is to consult with a board certified Dermatologist who specializes in hyperpigmentation. 

I hope this was helpful,
