Medium Depth Peel. (photos)

I stupidly peeled my skin after only 2 days. I had a monheit peel jessner & TCA 35%. I had lower strengths before. She said this was the highest. My skin is raw and red. Have I done permanent damage ? I just wanted rid of the static lines around eyes. There's no oozing or crusting. My upper eyelids are killing me too. I'm washing with cetaphil and moisturising. What's even more stupid is I had IPL for broken capillaries only 3 days before this peel in a different place. I was a bit swollen.
