TCA Peel Sun Exposure?

So I had a 35% TCA Peel done, and I was outside for a couple minutes and now my skin is a little bit pink in some areas. Did I cause permanent damage? I'm also very, very pale.

That small amount of sun exposure should not affect your outcome. Pinkness is normal after a TCA peel. Please see an expert if the redness worsens. Best, Dr. Emer

No.Post care TCA

No, not at 35% with pale skin. Follow the instructions your dermatologist- plastics gave. If you darken up, easily fixed with HQ. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
