No peel after TCA treatment (Photo)

I had a tca peel on my face and on a patch on my chest almost 2 weeks ago. My face has peeled but the patch on my chest has remained wrinkled and shows no sign of peeling. Please what can I do to make it peel off?

See professional for peels especially off the face TCA peels

Professionals can 
1. Exfoliate prior
2. Use an acetone scrub before
3. Add Jessners
4. Increase the concentration of the peel
5. Add another coat
6. Apply firmer pressure, but buffer the edges
7. Pre prep you skin a few weeks or days before with AHAs

Scarring most frequently occurs on the chest and neck, so please see a Board Certified specialist
