i do GA peels and you are suppoe to leave them on for 3 to 10 mins and then neutralise the acid with a bicard of soda water soloution.

if u did leave it on overnight, you are very very lucky you didnt end up with a massive scar.

That happens to me too. When I do multiple peels in a row many of my scars "frost" over and then become scabs. When the scabs fall off naturally the scars always look better, and the smaller icepick scars are gone.
