Two Layer TCA 20%?

I did a two layer 20% full-face TCA peel. It was my first peel full face peel because I rather wanted to get drastic results quickly with only one but intensive treatment rather than a slow improvement with lower strengths. How will the healing process be? What can I expect? Was my choice of doing a stronger peel a good one?

Don't do your own peel at home. You can cause serious scarring and pigment damage.

TCA peels are serious peels.  Don't do your own peel at home.  You can cause serious scarring and pigment damage.  Seek out a professional to do TCA peels.  I have seen lots of permanent scarring with such peels even when done professionally.  Don't be cheep at the risk of life-long injury.  See a professional!
