Dark spots after Salicylic Acid peel normal? (Photos)

Used an at-home salycilic acid 30% as guided by the instructions and left on for two minutes. This is what my skin looks like a couple of hours after. Is this a normal effect or is it a sign of hyperpigmentation? This is a picture of the left and right cheeks.

To save a few $$$ was not a good idea. Now you may have hyper pigmentation... Seek IN PERSON term or PS visits for therapy...
