This is not an easy question to answer without a bit more information.  I am not sure if your first treatment was also done on the neck area.  Perhaps you can gain some reassurance knowing that the dots you see are likely a good sign.  The rate at which the skin cells turnover on the neck is slower than that on the face.  What you are experiencing can be completely normal.  I would not recommend a tca peel at this time.  If you are the least bit concerned, call your doctor.  Good luck!
