Thanks for your query. Just wait for some time, the redness will settle down, just moisturize your skin well. Hope it help

Time and gentle lasers.

You do need time. Gentle lasers and sun protection can help. IMO anything beyond 20% -30% for trained at home peels can be dangerous. Redness can take a few months to subside. All the best, Dr Davin Lim
