Hi Nthabiseng, thank you for the question.
There are a number of choices for revitalizing the skin and the choice is dependent on what results you would like to achieve, financial considerations, and downtime.
Skin rejuvenation (technology based) can be achieved with both IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and fractional skin resurfacing (Fraxel, Palomar Starlux, Ultrapulse, Matrix RF, etc.) but which ever route you take one should only use a technology that is specifically indicated for darker skinned individuals. Skin rejuvenation procedures if performed by an experienced operator and the technology is considered ‘best in its class’ then one can expect excellent results and one should be able to achieve the results you are looking for. Please submit a new question letting me know in which city you live in so that I can refer you to a few doctors.
