shiny skin after tca peel

Posted (edited)
hello everyone,
on 24.06.2019 I performed a 35% tca peeling on the cheeks, to attenuate some small scars. Today, about a month later, there's a slight erythema that is slowly disappearing. I'm treating the skin with a healing cream under dermatologist 's prescription twice a day, I'm also avoiding exposure to sun. I have quite clear skin, fototype 3 on fytzpatrick scale. What worries me is that, looking at the area it was carried out with peeling, stretching the skin with my fingers here, I notice that new skin appears shiny in the light, as if there is applied a thin plastic sheet. My doubt is wheter it is a real scarring, or if the new skin will have the same texture as the surrounding skin. Could a cream based on ceramides or phospholipids be useful?
Thank you very much for the attention.

I wouldn’t use any peels or any of that. The best cream I think to use would be the CeraVe PM for heeling and maybe some AHAs to take care of the scars after your skin heels.

thank you very much for your suggestion, I will ask about cerave pm to my dermatologist. How many time is generally necessary to fade completely?

I want to add a detail for people who will read topic. My skin look as waxy if I see it on the light, this appareance is considerable when skin is wet, and less considerable when skin is dry. I also notice that erythema is more visible when my skin is wet.

(Sorry for my bad english, I'm not mother tongue)
