I gave myself and my husband a peel yesterday. By early evening, we each had small bumps. Mine were where I had some milia popping up. This morning all bumps are gone. Peel happening as planned!

yes to what everyone above has said and also in my experience, this commonly happens with glycolic acids peels and  when combining glycolic peels with  microderm or dermaplaning. Its not always a adverse effect, rather a common skin reaction to the acid that resolves itself quickly. Glycolic is such a small molecule and it penetrates the skin very fast. It can cause that irritation in the form of bumps and little whelps. Usually after about 8-12 hours it will go away. When it happens, i give the patient a low dose cortisone cream like locoid to keep on it for the next day or two to calm the inflammation

The only thing I know of is using baking soda and water after to neutralize peel. I wonder if it was just a break out, since it happened after. High frequency to avoid a break out.

Is there any suggestions?  It apparently occurs after they leave the salon.  I have two separate clients that had different treatments, so it is not the product.

Sounds like hives if they happened directly after.
