BACKGROUND: Melasma (facial dermatoses) is an acquired chronic disorder of hyperpigmentation over sun exposed parts and continues to be a therapeutic challenge due to the presence of melanin at varying depths in the epidermis and dermis, and many researchers are working hard to find a solution. The main culprit to remain is direct sun exposure, with other factors like drugs, genetic predisposition, thyroid abnormalities, pregnancy, phototoxic and photoallergic cosmetics. Melasma continues to have a remarkable impact on the well-being of affected patients causing deep psychological and social anguish, and with the expansion of cosmetic dermatology globally, treatments that are successful against skin diseases and boost beauty without prolonged recovery periods, or exposing patients to the risks of surgery, are increasingly recognised and acknowledged. Many clinicians have used various peeling in facial acne, scarring, and hyperpigmentations, and there have been no well-controlled studies comparing them with other conventional agents. CASE PRESENTATION: a unique case of facial hyperpigmentation in a black female who presented seeking help which can be attributed to increased aesthetic awareness among people nowadays. A single session of black peel several passes was performed and the lady noted a lightening effect in the following weeks. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this paper is to improve, advance and expand our understanding and the knowledge beyond what is already known to wider colleagues, to impact society at large and to disseminate the findings to wider audiences. Also, the objective of the present paper is to examine the different effect of black peel in the treatment of facial dermatoses, and it gives realistic tips on performing black peeling safely and effectively in ethnic skin groups. This is meant to shed light on some ways for clinical handling and improving our understanding scientifically and educationally. It is the first original case report of interest in the existing literature for the best of my knowledge that had a positive impact for my female patient. METHOD: A single pass of black peel was applied on the lady’s face. RESULTS: A pleasing brightening effect was examined and boosted the lady confidence. CONCLUSION: The patient had a positive pleasing experience that she had noticed from a single session application of the black peel. CI – © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
