Yes I know you have ethnic skin... You need to be doing hydroquinone and retin a 3 weeks before your peels to avoid hyperpigmentation. 

From these questions it sounds like you have not read the acid peel guide. Scar solutions - tca peels - click the link - read the whole first page.

You will be doing only a test spot at a low percentage to test the acid on a small area. This is especially important with ethnic skin. You cannot handle higher acid percentages and must test first and then apply at lower levels building up. You need to do the hydroquinone (or a skin whitening cream) and retin a also known as tretinorin before and after treatment once healed.

Your going to start at 12-15% after you test spot!
