can I expect another round of peeling? I expected that the underlying skin from the first peel would look different. No change in melasma, which is why I had it done. No change in skin texture. I used the retinol wipes and have used the moisturizer and sunscreen as directed. Is there something else I can do? This was expensive, and I'd hate for it to have been a total waste. I wasn't expecting a miracle, just an improvement in the melasma.
After Almost Completely Peeling in 3 Days No Visible Difference, Will There be Another Round of Peeling?

Treating melasma is a long term multi treatment and may take 6-12 months and multiple peels.
Startung with medical grade skin care with Retin A, multiple chemical peels , stop all hormonal treatment like birth control, sun block , no tanning salons no sun worshiping, and may require fractional CO2 laser multiple times.
