The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is the new addition to the Obagi medical range It contains a unique blend of acids to provide a gentle but effective salicylic acid-based facial chemical peel, resulting in tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin immediately after just one treatment. Salicylic acid–based peels are used to improve patient outcomes for a range of skin concerns, including photo damage, acne scarring, melasma and improved texture and tone. Blue Peel Radiance effectively exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed, and radiant with little to no downtime. You may also benefit from the Blue Peel Radiance if you are a skin type 4-6 with pigmentation.

What is the protocol for consultation and pre-treatment?
To maximize the desired results of this advanced peel treatment, the use of a Obagi pre-treatment kit consisting of home use products should be used for at least 2-4 weeks prior to treatment for lighter skin and 4-6 weeks for darker skin tones.
All patients must apply a suitable SPF30 daily before, during and after treatment.
What will happen during the consultation?
The practitioner will carry out a thorough skin analysis and review your health and medical history (regarding your skin). The practitioner will also set up a suitable home care program carefully designed to target your skin and individual needs. The practitioner may also carry out a patch test.

How does the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance work?
The Blue Peel Radiance Prep Solution is then applied to clean, dry skin, and the skin is left to dry completely. Thereafter the Blue Peel Radiance is applied in a systematic pattern of application in order to achieve even results. A second pass of the Blue Peel Radiance may be applied depending on the individual case. The treatment is then allowed to work into the skin for 5-10 minutes depending on the patients skin type, condition and sensitivity. Finally the practitioner will remove the product with a Obagi Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser and an SPF is applied.

The patient may experience a mild heat sensation, which can be assisted with either a fan.

How many Blue Peel Radiance treatments will I need?
Blue Peel Radiance treatments can be performed in a series of 4-6 treatments scheduled 2-4 weeks apart, approx. 2 times per year. If the desired results aren't achieved with a course of Blue Peel Radiance treatments we may recommend a stronger peel such as the Obagi Blue Peel or the Obagi Nu-derm kit.
