How can a chemical peel improve my appearance?

Obagi Medical Blue Radiance Peel aims to give you an instant, more even skin tone and texture, as well as tighter, smoother, brighter skin. Any photo damage to the skin will be improved. The results are immediate after just one session, but for better results, you will be advised to have a course of 4 – 6 sessions. Obagi Medical Blue Radiance Peel can give you a brighter, more rested look, so following treatment, you should look rejuvenated, with fewer pigmentation issues.

About Obagi Blue Peel Radiance

This skin peel is a gentle, but effective addition to the respected Obagi medical range. It’s blend of salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids, designed to provide reliable, rejuvenating results every time. It can improve the appearance of a number of skin conditions, including photo damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma and acne. If you’re looking to refresh a dull, tired complexion and give yourself a brighter look, as well as more confidence in your facial appearance, an Obagi Blue Peel Radiance skin peel could be the solution.

Note: You must be fit and well on the day of the treatment. You should not have had some specific treatments for 5-7 days beforehand as they will exacerbate skin sensitivity. Those treatments are laser hair removal, waxing or depilatory creams, electrolysis and microdermabrasion. An Obagi skin peel treatment may only be performed after a face to face consultation. Initial appointments are consultations only. It will then be necessary to return for a separate treatment appointment, as well as a post-treatment follow up.

Chemical Peel FAQs

Aftercare: No make-up for 6 hours post treatment. No sun beds or saunas for 24 hours after. Avoid facial procedures for 2 weeks.

During your consultation with Annie, your problem skin areas will be examined with a view to assessing your suitability for this treatment. As an experienced cosmetic practitioner and member of BACN, Annie knows what will achieve the best results for you. Obagi skin peels are not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, those who suffer from skin conditions such as dermatitis or rosacea, or anyone who has had radiation therapy in the target skin peel area. Additionally, cold sores, herpes, or warts need to be cleared up before treatment can commence. Wounded or sunburned skin needs to heal beforehand.

Various acids, exfoliant and topical retinoids are used to create the peel solution. You will be advised of the specific ingredients beforehand.

During your skin peel treatment, the target skin area will be cleansed, sensitive areas, such as the corners of the eyes, covered with a small amount of petroleum jelly, and then the peel solution will be applied. It’ll remain on the skin for 12 minutes, before being washed off. The peel tricks the body into thinking there’s an injury. In response, the body repairs the ‘injured’ skin, with new skin cells. Surface skin layers will peel away after 5-7 days, revealing fresh skin tissue underneath. The results will be tighter, more radiant skin.

Roughly 5-7 days following the treatment, you will feel a tightening of the skin. This is an indication that the exfoliation is about to begin. Underneath the peeling old skin, you’ll see fresh, pink new skin. It’ll take a short while for this new area of skin to fade in colour, so the skin tone matches the rest of you.

You will be advised to wear sunscreen with a minimum 30 SPF for at least a week after treatment and use Hydrate to moisturise the area. It’s important you don’t pick at the skin as it peels away, or that you perform any sort of hair removal treatment for a week. Annie will advise you of some facial products to avoid too.

Kylie Barber Hitchin

“Annie made me feel so comfortable and excited about my decision! Was so scared about looking 'fake' but ended up being reassured the entire time. Annie went very slow and kept me involved in each step and let me assess before moving on! The amount of reassurance did not end after the procedure, she kept texting to check in and answer ALL of my question about post care 🙂 I would highly recommend Annie for anything!”
