Chronic inflammation can cause pigmentation, so it is not surprising that you may have pigmented areas of skin.  A series of light MelaPeels should work to improve the pigmentation in combination with Melaquin creams rather than a deep chemical peel.

You want clearer skin and no dark spot without complications

If I had a dark spot on my skin I would opt for a photofacial procedure which doesn't depend on taking off layers of skin as does a chemical peel. If your skin is dry and irritated any chemical placed on your skin will penetrate deeper and potentially have unwanted consequences. The only type of skin to do a chemical peel or resurfacing laser on is one which is intact. If your skin is overly dry or irritated remedy that with moisturizing lotions etc. first.

Good Luck!
