Obagi Skin Peels Overview
What is a Obagi Blue Radiance chemical peel?
Obagi Blue Peel Radiance : 100 euro
Single peel – instantaneous radiant appearance
4-6 peels – deeper more effective result
The Obagi blue peel radiance is a “go to” chemical peel for all skin types, especially acne prone skin.
It contains 40% salicylic acid including skin calming agents to effectively exfoliate your skin cells in the most superficial skin layer. The salicylic acid unclogs your pores, cleanses your skin, reduces redness & pus due to its anti-inflammatory properties and leaves your skin looking visibly clearer & more radiant.
It can be used as a single treatment, however the results are longer lasting & more effective if done as a course of 6 peels. Especially, for those prone to the dreaded “spots” or acne.
- deep exfoliation
- unclogs pores
- more controlled acne prone skin
It takes 20 minutes. Your skin is thoroughly cleansed & degreased prior to the application of the salicylic acid. You will feel a warm tingling sensation initially which quickly subsides. After the peel, calming agents re applied to your skin followed by a physical SPF cream to protect your skin. It is best not to wear make-up for 12 hours afterwards, but breathable make-up can be applied 4 hours afterwards if necessary.
The Blue Peel Radiance is also a very effective adjunct to the Nuderm Skin Transformation System to further enhance the changes of your skin.
Blue Peel TCA 275 euro
Single peel – deep exfoliation for skin transformation
3-4 peels – delivers dramatic longer lasting skin transformation.
The TCA trichloraecetic acid peel gives dramatic skin tightening, lightening and lifting results. It’s fabulous for tightening loose sagging skin or very lined skin, including fine lipstick lines. The added benefit of this peel is that it can be used on your eyelids, a notoriously difficult area to treat.
Plus; the results get better over a 3 month period!
Anyone can have this peel. Skin preparation is KEY to getting the best results.
- deep exfoliation of several skin layers
- suitable for all skin types
- great for pigmentation, e.g. melasma and inflammatory pigmentation following laser therapy
- reduces the appearance of scars
- tightening of skin, can be used on the eyelids and on the upper area of the neck
The peel takes about 45 minutes depending on the number of layers applied by the medically trained clinician. You will feel a warm tingling sensation that last for only a few seconds as each layer is applied. You will experience shedding of your skin about 3 days afterwards as the outer dead skin cells exfoliate to reveal healthier, tighter renewed skin. It is imparitive that you don’t pick or peel the loose skin as this could cause scarring.
You may need to take 4-7 days off following the peel as you cannot wear make-up until your skin has completely exfoliated.
Sun exposure must be avoided until you can apply high factor sunscreen onto your “new skin”.
Repeated TCA blue peels can produce even tighter & even better results. It can be repeated after 12 weeks.
