TCA- 30% Questions! - Atlanta, GA

I am african american and decided to use a 30% TCA...

I am african american and decided to use a 30% TCA on my hyperpigmentation marks only. I have used 15-25% before and it had not burned my skin! However I used the 30 % last night and it frosted QUICKLY. it turned extremely white, about 15 minutes later it turned extremely dark and has been the same since! should I expect scarring?? help! how can I reverse the burn?

Please try to pre-treat your skin next time before applying any peels I know we want so badly to be rid of those terrible marks on our faces .But remember its the only one we have...Please do your homework and go on u-tube to watch videos....Plautium Skin Care is the one I have chosen and so far it's good....They even have someone to help you with any questions..Hope this helps!
