Not All Chemical Peels Are Alike
Not all Chemical Peels are the same. Many variables are at play: type of agent, pH, number of coats/passes used, lenghth of time in contact with skin, type of prep, skin type (oily, dry, thin, ethnicity), age of patient, skin color, after care, etc. Without knowing these details it is not possible to comment.
My suggestion is to return to your Dermatologist for an indepth discussion about realistic expectations and options.

Chemical Peel Efficacy
Thank you for your question. Without knowing the chemical, the skin prep, and the duration of the time the chemical was left on your skin, there is no way to accurately provide information. I recommend you see your dermatologist and ask for more information. Some peels can produce peeling, while others cause minimal redness or peeling.
I hope this helps.
A 50% glycolic acid peel may cause some redness for a day or so and some peeling or just dry skin 3 to 6 days after the peel. The amount of redness and peeling depends on your skin type and how long the acid was left on your skin. If you do not notice any peeling, your dermatologist will probably leave the acid on longer next time. Remember to use sun protection.
