Would a post peel hyper pigmentation heal on its own without leaving a scar? How long does it take? (Photo)

I had a TCA peel a couple of days ago. I was asked to use a steroid cream in case I developed any brownish discoloration over my face which I did . Now , I notice a brownish patch around my chin which is very disturbing . What do I do ? And how long does it take to clear permanently ? Would this leave a scar behind ?

Peel Pigmentation

All my patients with deep peels get a silicone based scar gel with growth factors and b5 hyaluronic acid. Please see your cosmetic dermatologist for appropriate follow up care (lasers, skin care) to ensure no hyperpigmentation.  Best, Dr. Emer.
