Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are the perfect treatment choice if you suffer from problem skin complaints, such as acne, congestion, rosacea, pigmentation or generally oily or dehydrated skin. You are one peel away from brighter, younger looking skin that not only looks incredible, but feels it too.

Chemical peels have a reputation of being painful, and it is a common misconception that you have to remain indoors for two weeks following a peel. Chemical peels have specific ingredients to combat different skin concerns, and the science behind it is progressive, not aggressive. For this reason, your skin will look AND feel amazing the very same day.

It is vital that you use a robust skin regime at home to complement and get the most out of your skin treatments. Otherwise, all the hard work with peels, and money spent, will all be wasted. It is important to choose the right ingredients which will work for your specific skin condition. Reid Medical will discuss a treatment plan, conduct an in-depth skin analysis, and devise a bespoke plan to get your skin looking its absolute best.


Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

No. you will feel heat and tingling for a few minutes, but this can be uncomfortable rather than painful. The majority of patients enjoy this as they can feel the treatment working.

Will I peel?

Each individual is different, and peels vary depending on the condition being treated, so it is possible that you may peel. Chemical peels work at a cellular level, so can exfoliate without the need for peeling. Please don’t feel that the treatment hasn’t worked if you don’t peel! It is likely that most people will have an element of shedding.

Will I be able to return to my normal activities?

Yes. You may experience some slight pinkness, but there will be no burns or scab marks to worry about. Peels are very gentle, and the idea is little and often.

What products should I use afterwards?

It is vital you wear an SPF in all weather conditions, to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which can burn your skin and age you. Your skin is more vulnerable to the elements post-peel so aftercare compliance is essential.

What can I expect from the results?

Skin cellular turnover can take 28 days to renew, so you will continue to see results up to and after this point. It is essential that you follow your bespoke treatment plan at home to prolong the effect of your treatments. Most patients will require several peels, as well as a home care regime, to get the results they desire. Peels are a two-way combined treatment: 50% clinic-based treatment, and 50% care at home.
