Burned Skin - Chicago, IL

I am 23 years old and decided to get a glycolic peel for the first time few days ago. I went to a specialist and she said she will do a 30% peel on me. After the peel, I went home and my face was still burning, my right side of face is completely red and looks burned. Will it leave scars? I look like I have been hit by a train. I went back to the specialist and she said this is normal and it will peel, but for some reason it's just the right side of my face. Take a look at the photo.

It took me about 3 to 4 weeks to recover, my face was in so much pain, and I was worried I would have scars but everything heeled. It didnt help my skin in any way and personally I wouldn't do it again. Had to call off 3 weeks of work because couldn't go out looking this awful, and it was painful to touch my face for a while.

thanks for sharing. Something similar has happened to me but it's like a deep patch of skin missing which is scabbing over and oozing right side of my face too!!. Did that also happen to you? Not much pain though which is actually a worry as the burn could have been deep enough to destroy nerve endings :(!
