Other FAQs

What is the chemical peel process?

During a chemical peel, your skin care professional will first thoroughly cleanse your skin and then will apply one or more chemical solutions – such as glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid,  or carbolic acid (phenol) – to your skin. The chemicals cause the top layer of skin to blister and eventually peel off, revealing newer, healthier looking skin. The discomfort during and after a chemical peel varies from patient to patient and is largely dependent on the extent of the treatment. Most patients will feel a stinging or burning sensation during treatment. Cool compresses usually are effective in helping to alleviate this mild discomfort.


What is the downtime after a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are non-invasive but do carry with them some downtime, depending on how deep the chemical peel is. At La Beau Te Med Spa of Lake Forest we have found that we generally only need to perform a light chemical peel because of the advanced technologies we use in combination with our other treatments.  A light chemical peel will produce a sunburn-like effect with some peeling a few days after the treatment. Your skin care professional will discuss your medical history, any medications you are taking, and your desired results and if you are a good candidate for a chemical peel, and will help you to further understand the process and side effects.


For our chemical peels we exclusively use PCA (Physicians Care Alliance) products.
