Salicylic Acid peel burn help !!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I did a salicylic acid peel (18%) about 2 months ago on my face and it went fine, skin peeled in about a week. I just did another one less than 2 weeks ago and for some reason it felt stronger. I had it on for about a minute and rinsed off with cool water. The skin peeled a few days later like a sun burn and was pink. Now, the spots that I did the peel are brown,....will it heal? Oh man I'm so worried. Especially around my chin its really brown. Please help! eusa_wall.gifeusa_wall.gifeusa_wall.gifeusa_wall.gifeusa_wall.gifeusa_wall.gifeusa_wall.gif

i DO know that i did a 20% TCA peel (which is much stronger than  a18% saliciyic acid peel), a few month ago, and at the first days, all my freckles and pigmentation were becoming much much darker, like they went up on the surface. if i hadn't been warn before i would have been really freaked. cause they looked so much darker and so much visible, and than they totally shed off.

The brown skin should peel off on its own. Salicylic acid at an 18% concentration shouldn't cause any permanent damage. I use 20% SA frequently.
