Chemical Peel for Brown Spots on Olive Skin

Chemical peel. I have a nice olive complection...

Chemical peel. I have a nice olive complection with a few minor brown spots. I didn't go into the office thinking about a peel, but my doctor talked me into it saying that I'd have essentially one day of peeling and then be fine AND that it wouldn't hurt.

The Dr had the assistant give me the procedure. It was supposed to be a Vitapeel. The assistant did the acetone step, the peel and then messed up and did another layer of acetone with a 10% DNCB.

I had a very bad immediate reaction >The Dr came in & put cold compresses on me and my neck (even though it wasn't treated it was red hot). The Dr put me on predisone.

It's now day two and I now have a reddish brown mask w/some darker brown spots that &feeltight. Am I going to have long term damage?
