Secondary Peeling/scabs After Vi Peel

On day 10 after vi peel. All went like the literature but after primary peel I peeled again. Its lighter/flakier but I have a few large patches on my cheeks that are like scabs. I didnt prematurely peel skin but the spots look like damaged skin. Skin is dry tight & uneven. Is this normal?

CinciMom- your situation sounds unusual in that there usually is not a second round of peeling after a Vi peel. You should be examined by a board certified dermatologist to determine if you have some other skin condition.
