I had an 18% sal acid chemical peel at my derm's office 2 days ago. Some areas have turned brown and are peeling quite substantially. The new skin left behind is quite pink; however, I thought Salicylic acid peels were superficial, but it seems to have removed a fair bit of skin, particularly on my chin. Is this normal? And how long is the pinkness likely to stay for?
