I would sincerely advise you to avoid undergoing 20% salicylic peel at home as it may lead to PIH (dark colouration) and even burns. Instead you may use topical salicylic acid preparations at home like Sebonac gel, Salisia cream, etc. For peels you may contact a dermatologist.

Hi.Ideally a chemical peel should be performed by a specialist,ideally a Dermatologist,to avoid any kind of post procedure complications. A Salicylic Acid peel is usually performed for active acne and post the peel anti acne medications can be continued depending on the severity of acne.I would need to look at ur picture and know ur current status before advising any medication.
