Is This Picture A Realistic Expectation For Red Mark Improvement

She uses chemical peel (I think it's either TCA or glycolic or a combination) and heals quite quickly in a month.

Do you think I can improve this fast with chemical peel? I'm also on retin a for about 3 months if that's anything. Thanks in advance!

Aside from some deep spots that I have, I think my pigmentation area is very similar to hers.

It seems realistic. I have used AHA (10% glycolic acid) and it helped a great deal in clearing the red marks that acne left behind. All in all it took about 4 months to be me clear and to have the red marks go away.
