Question: I am an African-American with a darker skin tone. I have uneven pigmentation around my face and neck and would like to know if a chemical peels or dermabrasion procedure would work as well on me as it would for a lighter skinned person?

Answer: Unfortunately, a chemical peel or dermabrasion would be contraindicated in dark skin such as yours.  You would have a very high likelihood of ending up with worse pigmentation problems than you started with.  You are; however, a good candidate for skin care that can significantly improve the overall tone, texture, and coloration of your skin.
