Thank you for your question. At times after a peel, the oil glands can become very active, and produce more.  Usually, then become less active, and the skin becomes dry, and people complain of more wrinkles after a peel due to dryness.  More oil usually provides the illusion of  less wrinkles. I recommend you visit your Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with expertise in cosmetic procedures, peels, and anti aging treatments and have a skin evaluation and consultation to discuss all of your options. I hope this helps.
