Light Spots During TCA Peel. Did I over Peel?

I did a 2 layer 12.5 and I'm on day 4 now. I have tiny light spots on the dark patch where I put the peel on. It isn't flaking, but is very tight and wrinkly when I move my mouth. There is no flaking and signs of peeling at all. It feels like I have a deep, thick, and stiff scab on my skin. Is the light spots signs of over peeling and a burn. NOTE: The two large dark spots are not burnt results from the peel. My skin was literally BLACK in those places. Not brown, but Black.

Thank you so much! No need to be paranoid. And its perfectly fine its not peeling now. My skin didn't start peeling until day 5 both times I've done it. And after that point the tough part for me is to let the skin peel without me helping AT ALL. I messed that up a bit and I'm not at the point where I don't need to wear makeup (pretty bummed about that. Its why I'm doing the peels in the first place), but I'm going to do an 18% in November and hopefully I will be done with peels and makeup for a while after that. Good luck with your peel!

I saw the question you posted. Have you gone to seek treatment? How is the area feeling?

It's actually feeling great. It's peeling and not as tight so I didn't burn or over peel myself. The new skin under is lighter and not raw so everything is going good.
