Is discoloration from a burn/irritation permanent?

Recommended Posts

I got a facial at a spa and the products she put on my face (I went to massage envy and she gave me a facial, she said she used mainly vitamin C products from Murad) were really strong and left a small part of my face irritated and red. The redness hardened and then scabbed off/was peeling (but it was sort of my fault because I sort of picked at the already peeling skin) and turned pink. The pink went away in 1-3 days but the area is now darker than my actual skin color (keep in mind that I do have dark skin). Is this discoloration permanent or will it go away in time? I have been putting aloe vera by Fruit of the Earth on the dark place hoping that it might help.
