To me this sounds like hyperpigmentation  but I could not say without certainty if  I have not evaluated you. You may have not been a candidate for the peel you received. It may have been too strong, a wrong combination of acids, or your skin type may have caused this possible hyperpigmentation.

First, have you been applying SPF cream daily? These spots can also be caused from too much sun exposure. I would call or return to the physician, and voice your concerns.
