Should my face show signs of peeling 34 hours post chemical peel? (Photo)

Thank you for your question. Generally, there may be some tenderness, redness or appearance of dark spots on your face as a side effect of chemical peel, however, we are unable to provide you a detailed description of what to expect after the procedure until we know the type of procedure that you received. I suggest that you discuss your recovery expectations with your board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Thank you for your question. The time to peel and the amount you will peel is dependent upon the type and depth of peel you had. It would be hard to determine without knowing what type of peel you had done. I would recommend you follow up with your provider to see which type of peel you had done and what to expect.

The timing of peeling following a chemical peel depends on many factors. This includes what peel is used, how concentrated the peel was, how long the peel was left on for those that need to be neutralized, how hard the applicator was pushed when applying the solution, etc. Without knowing any of the above it is difficult to say when you should peel. I'd recommend you call your spa and ask them. Depending on your needs, in the future you may consider consulting with one of the core aesthetic physicians (facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, dermatologist) to see what is best for your skin.
I hope this helps and good luck.
