How can I repair my badly damaged & prematurely ageing skin after too many TCA peels?

I’m 27 and about 5 years ago I ordered a TCA peel online all over 6 months. I did about 6 peels (I know way too many), and I have completely damaged my skin. I have really bad scars, especially under my eyes. I am starting to wrinkle under my eyes and my skin is just disgusting and uneven, I never had a problem with acne before. Now I wake up every day with new pimples and I have bad cystic acne, how can I repair my skin? Would dermarolling be useful? Does emu oil really thicken damaged skin?

Peels should always be performed under the supervision of a trained professional. I would highly advise against performing peeling treatments at home due to a lack of understanding of the properties of the peel and how to control its action in the skin. I would suggest that you consult a dermal therapist and have them address your skin concerns.
