    I would not recommend performing TCA peels on yourself.  However, the redness after a proper peel can last for several days.

You are asking for trouble doing your own TCA Peels at home.

I do not recommend doing your own TCA peels at home.  You risk permanent abnormal pigmentation and possible scarring.
