OBAGI BLUE RADIANCE PEEL
The Obagi Blue Radiance peel is a non-invasive, gentle chemical facial peel.
All peels use an acid-base to literally burn off the top layer of skin thereby encouraging cell renewal for fresher, younger looking skin. The higher the concentration of acid, the deeper the peel and the longer the downtime.
However, the Obagi Blue Radiance peel has a very low level of salicylic acid. Designed to be used in a course of six low-burn treatments, it’s perfect if you can’t accommodate the week of downtime associated with one-off deeper peels.
A course of six treatments that can be done in your lunchtime is a gentle but effective way of getting skin in tip-top shape coming up to the Christmas party season, a wedding, or after the skin-damaging effects of a holiday in the sun and sea. It improves the general texture and tone of skin and claims to be able to help with photo damage, acne scarring, and signs of sun damage
Prior to the treatment, your skin will be fully prepared using an Obagi cleanser and preparation solution. The acid-based peel solution will then be applied and left on your skin for up to 10 minutes, this may vary from individual to individual. Post treatment, Obagi products will be applied to hydrate, soothe and protect the skin.
You will leave the clinic wearing an SPF 50 (sun protection) to protect your skin. We advise that this is worn for a minimum of five days post peel. For the continual protection of your skin we advise daily use of an SPF with a high level of UVA/UVB protection.
We recommend 4-6 weeks between each Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatment
NeoStrata Pro Systems Peels – Rejuvenate Your Skin’s Appearance
Neostrata ProSystem is a highly effective, superficial peeling system used by medical skincare professional that is clinically proven to achieve outstanding and predictable results in skincare. The system offers the flexibility of four Rejuvenating Peel concentrations – 20%, 35%, 50%, and 70% Glycolic Acid – and two targeted benefit peels for Clarifying and Brightening the skin. This allows us to design a treatment program to specifically meet your individual skincare needs.
Neostrata ProSystem utilizes three different alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s); glycolic acid, citric acid and mandelic acid. AHA’s are naturally occurring “fruit acids” found in fruits and other foods. Glycolic acid is found naturally in sugar cane, citric acid in citrus fruits, and mandelic acid in almonds. Many common skin problems are associated with the excess build-up of dead skin cells that make the skin thick and dull and may cause clogged pores. AHA’s help loosen and remove the dead surface layers of skin to exfoliate and smooth skin, as well as provide deeper antiaging effects.

HEALING RECOVERY TIME
