Issues with 20% Gylcolic peel and Retin A

I went in to get a facial at a spa about 2 days ago. I had told them previously that I had been using Retin A in certain places on my face. They put a 20% glycolic peel on my face without me knowing and it started to burn. About 2 minutes later they took it off. I now have two huge starting to scab circles under my eyes where I had used Retin A. I went to the dermatologist and they said it should be okay but I am very worried it will leave scars. Does anyone have any similar experiences that they can help ease my concerns? I am really freaking out and I have been putting aquaphor on them constantly and everything.

@shopaholic142 how long before the peel did you stop using retin a? Did you have any reactions to retin a x
