Light Peel for Acne Led to Outbreak of Pimples

I had a light peel done on my face a couple of weeks back. My face had just a few pimples (not more than 5) and my doctor suggested that the easiest way to get rid of them was to do a chemical peel. However, after getting it done, I have an outbreak of pimples all over my face especially on my forehead. Now, I have more pimples after the peel than before. I am not sure if I should continue my treatment with the peel as I fear that It would get worse after each session

Is an outbreak of pimples normal after a chemical peel? and if so, how long will it take to heel completely? or should I stop the treatment alltogether and resort to a more natural approach to dealing with my pimples?

The same thing happened to me after a Jessner's Peel. On days 4 and 5 the peeling started, and I had a full on whitehead goatee in my chin area and really red, painful pimples all over my cheeks and forehead. It's day 6 today, and my skin looks terrible! I'm trying to stay calm. I know it gets worse before it gets better....
