TCA 30% Caused Deep Scarring On My Cheeks!

After a 30% TCA peel, some deep scars appeared on my face! They look like deeply-scratched or scooped-out skin. You could also imagine it like they were stamped so they are indeed already depressed. When the TCA was applied a week ago, on those areas they frosted so much compared to the other areas, kind of yellowish as well, and right now I have these deep scars! Will they ever fill up or are these permanent? I'm using Avene Cicalfate Repair Cream, HELP!

Lasers for a TCA burn

Atrophic and pigmented scars may appear after a botched TCA Peel. I would suggest local wound care, application of Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase creams, and fractional laser.
