TCA Full-Face Peel 30% Four Days After TCA Cross 30% - Worried About Scarring - Please Help Me! (photos)

I had a TCA Cross 30% done last June 24, 2016 (Friday) then after about 3 days, scabs have formed. I have accidentally scratched off one or two of the scabs then it left a depressed mark! I panicked so I contact my dermatologist then he said that proceeding with a full-face TCA Peel 30% so that my skin will be evened out. The rest of my face frosted except for the areas that were already treated with TCA Cross, those with scabs. Please tell me what's most likely to happen to my face!

Please see a board certified dermatologist. An in person evaluation is needed to provide you with further treatment and skin care.  It is important to be on preventative skin care at this time. Best, Dr. Emer

Please consult a professional, you need wound healing and prevention of any infection. IMO TCA at 30% should only be done by professionals. 

Regardless, wound care is your number one priority.
