thats wierd, i did a glycolic peel 2 days ago and the same thing happened to me i suppose i went too strong. my cheeks and part of my chin got all red and stung to touch them so i put on some neosporin, now they've turned into scabs so i doubt much damage to my skin was done. i guess the best thing to do is keep the scabs moist so they dont crack and make a scar, also dont pick at them if any is falling off just trim it with some scissors. anyone else have this happen to them? did it do any damage?

It usually takes about a week for the scab to fall off naturally. How long the underlying redness lasts depends on how deeply the skin was damaged. Some have taken well over a month to fade, but a little concealer will effectively cover it.
The best thing to do is keep applying the 100% aloe vera as it will help the healing. Emu oil can also be applied on top of the aloe; its transdermal quality can be beneficial. Lastly, products containing the latest peptide technologies will also speed up the healing.
If the red turns to brownish scars, products containing hydroquinone will slowly fade the hyperpigmentation. I use and recommend Fading Fluid from Serious Skin Care (www.hsn.com).

Emu oil has been promoted as being closest to human skin's natural oils. It is slightly antibacterial and noncomedogenic.
Sometimes I apply aloe vera then use emu on top to help the aloe penetrate deeper into the skin.
I also use copper peptide serum and emu on top. The copper peptide controls oils and the emu "tricks" the skin into acting as if the skin has produced sufficient oil and stops its overproduction, thereby giving skin a less oily appearance.

Anyways it burned the sides of my chin and scabbed over lot worst than I ever had and I looked horribe for a couple days. The scabs have peeled off (I used vitamin E cream and 100% aloe vera all over including scabs while it was bad) and it's peeled off. Left it slight pink and now 5days later it is slightly darker/browner than my normal skin (I'm latino slightly tanned/olive complexion). You can see it's discolored where the scabs were but it seems to be blending in a little each day. I really hope it doesnt scar!! well if I do another peel I'll definitely be leaving it on for a lot less (around 2 minutes). Hopefully it should make these brown splotches fade or they'll even out over time. Anything I can do to improve it??! will this leave a red mark. its not really scarred but discolored

People with darker complexions have a huge rate of increased hyperpigmentation after these treatments. Its due to the fact that these complex melanin colours are hard to build back after the skin has been severly resurfaced. White is the basic colour of rehealed skin evan in darker people [if your black notice you can make your white skin when you scartch it]. This is why you should excersise increased pecaution.
