Why do I have white patches after Cosmelan 1 and 2 (Photos)

5 days after my cosmelan peel I have light patches. I don't know if I should continue use of cosmelan 2. I use a moisturizing spf50+ and aqueous cream when I feel my face is dry. My face feels smooth. I didn't use the hydra-k factor cream because I was reacting to it. I'm loving the texture but not the color. I am still peeling in some areas of my face. Is this normal discoloration/hypopigmentation normal? Do I discontinue use?

I would wait before continuing more of the therapy to see if the differential in color resolves. In the meantime, apply Elevase Moisture Booster to help heal the skin.
