Chemical Peel treatment

What is the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance?

The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is a Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid peel, which is suitable for all ethnicities. and It forms part of a wider menu of peels from Obagi, and is being a milder version of the original Obagi Blue Peel. This peel aims to brighten, smoothen skin texture, and decongests clogged pores.

It is suitable for patients of various all skin types. Due to the higher percentage of Salicylic Acid, it is particularly beneficial for those with oily and blemish prone skin. It offers remarkable results for patients with dull mature skin, with fine lines and rough, uneven skin. It is an effective option for patients seeking skin rejuvenation, improved texture, and tone, and achieving a more radiant complexion. This chemical peel has a keratolytic effect, meaning it sheds dead skin and therefore unblocks pores effectively. This contributes to less acne breakouts occurring in the future.

What can chemical peels help with?

Enhance the look and feel of your skin and skin texture, reduce dark patches, freckles, or age spots. Treat certain types of acne, improve the appearance of mild scars. Treat wrinkles that have been caused by ageing and sun damage, reduce fine lines around the mouth and under the eyes.

Why have an Obagi Blue Peel Treatment?

The key features and benefits of Obagi Blue Peel – Obagi Blue Radiance, chemical face peel are:

  • Mild Chemical Peel: The Blue Peel Radiance is a blend of salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid other ingredients to exfoliate the skin’s outermost layers. This These acids help to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and stimulate cell turnover, collagen production and hydration levels within the skin. The results are smoother, brighter skin.
  • Fast Procedure: The treatment is relatively quick and can typically be completed in approximately 30 minutes. 
  • Part of Skincare Regime: It is often performed as a standalone procedure or as part of a comprehensive skincare regimen.
  • Minimal Downtime: As a light, superficial peel, the Blue Peel Radiance only penetrates the top layers of the skin. The result is minimal downtime, and most patients resume their normal activities after the treatment.
  • Suitable for Various Skin Types: Blue Peel Radiance is suitable for individuals with diverse skin types and concerns, including acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation, rough texture, and uneven skin tone. It can also help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Customisable Treatment: The intensity of the peel can be adjusted based on the individual’s skin condition, desired outcome, and tolerance. Multiple treatments may be recommended to achieve optimal results, with the frequency determined by your skin specialist.
  • Professional Application: The Blue Peel Radiance is administered by a trained skincare professional, who will assess the skin’s condition, create a bespoke treatment plan, and ensure proper application for safe and effective results.

The below are some of the benefits and results you can achieve with a chemical skin peel:

  • Rejuvenated, brighter skin
  • Better nourished skin
  • More hydrated skin
  • Dull skin is revived
  • Stimulated collagen production
  • Appearance of fine lines and wrinkles reduced
  • Reduction of inflammation and breakouts caused by acne

  • Even skin texture and tone
  • Smoother, softer skin
  • Reduced pigmentation and impact of sun damage

How long will it take to recover from a chemical peel?

This will depend on the depth of peel and following the aftercare provided, but as an example, it will take approximately 1 week to heal after you have had a medium chemical peel.

It is important that you follow your practitioner’s directions on cleansing, moisturising and SPF/protection on your skin after any chemical peel.

After a light chemical peel, your skin may be:

  • Slightly red
  • Drier
  • Mildly irritated

The more peels you have, the less noticeable these effects may be.

Recovery is typically 1-7 days after a light chemical peel.

After a medium chemical peel, your skin may be:

  • Red
  • Tighter
  • Slightly swollen
  • Feeling tingly/stinging.

Your practitioner will give you guidance on how to relieve any discomfort, for example with a fan or ice packs, but please follow specific aftercare provided.

Treated areas take approximately 7-14 days for recovery, with redness lasting longer.

After a deep chemical peel, your skin may be:

  • Burning
  • Swollen
  • Red
  • Throbbing
  • Eyelids may swell

It is imperative to follow your doctor’s guidance on aftercare following a deep chemical peel. New skin should develop within 2 weeks, although you may experience spots, cysts or redness which can take a number of weeks to recover.

How many Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatments will I need?

The treatment will be effective after 1 application, however best results are seen after a minimum of 3 treatments.

Can you speed up the process?

A lot of people try to speed up the peeling process once it begins. You shouldn’t do this. Forcing the process is not recommended. This is how you end up with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Accordingly, use a gentle and mild cleanser and gently massage your face with it, simply using your hands. If you were to use a washcloth, you would be wiping the dead skin away prematurely, and that’s not the goal here. Forcing the process won’t give you the results you’re looking for.

Do I need to prepare my skin before having the treatment?

Generally, as this is a superficial, Salicylic Acid based face peel, preparation is minimal. You may be asked to stop certain products, to protect your skin, stay hydrated and stop pause specific treatments that may hinder the performance of the chemical peel. If the barrier of your skin shows signs of impairment (dryness), skin prep products are necessary to strengthen the barrier of your skin and make the treatment safe and effective. Your skin specialist will provide you with all the pre and post care information required for your skin.

Do I need to use any specific aftercare products for a chemical face peel?

Yes, iit is likely that we will recommend that you use a medical grade moisturiser and SPF to assist with desquamation (shedding) hydration and protection of your skin, following your chemical peel. We may also recommend you stop certain products with ingredients that are contraindicated after a peel for the following 5-7 days – AHAs, BHAs, retinoids, retinols and facial products containing fragrance.

Your skin specialist can assess your current products to ensure they are suitable or recommend from our range in the clinic.

What do I do before my peel to get the best results?

What do I do before my peel to get the best results?

3 days prior to the peel, we recommend that you stop using active products (i.e. those containing retinol, retinoids, glycolic acid and other AHAs, BHAs, exfoliating masks, benzoyl peroxide. We would also recommend that you stop any bleaching products (i.e. hydroquinone). 

Avoid laser hair removal, waxing, depilatory creams or electrolysis 5-7 days prior to the peel. We also recommend no sun bed treatments, or any form of sunburn on tanning of the face 2 weeks prior to your peel (including fake tan)

For dry skin (barrier impaired) our skin specialist will advise which medical skincare we would recommend hydrating the skin.

If you have recently had any medical aesthetic facial treatments such as laser treatment, microdermabrasion, you should wait to have any acid-based peel until all lingering skin sensitivity has subsided.

What do I do after my peel to get the best results?

After an Obagi Blue Radiance Peel, you must use SPF for at least one week after the peel; a sun protection product with an SPF of at least 30 should be worn at all times. Dryness and redness may occur for 1-2 days; mild peeling should start to occur within 48hrs and can last 2-5 days. Do not use any physical exfoliation, but treat the skin very gently. A mild moisturiser such as Clenziderm or Obagi Hydrate facial moisturiser may and should be used to minimise dryness and redness. Avoid products containing fragrance for 3-5 days post peel. Avoid direct sun exposure and use of all exfoliating agents such as AHAs, BHAs, retinoids, retinols and exfoliating scrubs for 5-7 days post peel. A normal regimen can be resumed 7 days post peel. 

Drink water, protect skin from rubbing, and contact Omniya for follow-up treatments.

What is in the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance?

The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance has 20% Salicylic Acid (helps to unclog pores and reduce inflammation), 2% Glycolic acid (boosts collagen production and supports skin’s  moisture) and 2% Lactic acid (aids in hydration and further exfoliation).

How many peels will I need?

The number of Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatments needed varies based on individual skin concerns and goals. Typically, a course of 3 to 6 peels spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart is recommended for best results. However, your aesthetician will assess your skin condition and provide a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Are there any side effects? 

Side effects of the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance may include temporary redness, dryness, flaking, sensitivity, and tingling. Rarely, it may cause pigmentation changes or infection. Discuss concerns with your aesthetician at Omniya and follow post-peel care instructions to minimise risks and achieve optimal results.
