Yes!: Aesthetic peels, complemented with good skin care products and sun block, can soften discolorations and lighten the skin. Stronger peels, such as phenol peels, will do more to lighten the skin but would not be appropriate for a younger individual. Lasers and bleaching creams can also improve darker coloring. Good luck!

Medical Questions: Having darker or non-fair skin is not a medical condition or disease. It is the unnecessary desire to change one's skin color that is the disease here. This needless worry causes significant stress and postpones the cultivation of self esteem and pride in one's self that should be part of the goal of growing up. I would wish for you better self esteem and comfort when you look in the mirror.
