Professionally applied chemical peel solutions exfoliate dead skin cells and help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. These treatments allow deeper layers of fresh and untouched skin to be revealed.
The Blue Radiance Peel is a salicylic acid-based chemical peel for all skin types that exfoliates and helps improve overall complexion. This peel is celebrated for its instant and radiant results. It can improve a range of skin concerns such as sun damage, tone, texture, and overall skin dullness. The Obagi Blue Radiance peel provides a more superficial exfoliation, so there is little to no downtime and instant radiance. Tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just 1 use! This peel is perfect if you feel like your skin needs a good exfoliation. However, if you’re looking to address specific skin concerns, a series of 3 to 6 peels is recommended (depending on the skins starting point and goals).
Before the procedure, the esthetician will cleanse the skin followed by manual steam and extractions. Application of the Obagi Blue Radiance Peel varies from person to person but on average takes about 20 minutes. A mild tingling sensation that lasts one to two minutes will be felt however we use fanning to minimize this sensation. At the end of the treatment, hydrating products and sunscreen will be applied.
Pre-Care: Prior to receiving treatment make sure to tell your technician if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have any allergies, prone to cold sores/fever blisters or using topical and/or oral prescription medications such as Tretinoin, Retin-A, Isotretinoin, Accutane, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuo or Ziana.
Post-Care: After the treatment avoid any trauma to the skin for up to 2-5 days, such as bathing with very hot water, strenuous exercise, or massage. Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin to achieve your best results. Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds during the 14 days prior to and following the end of treatment. The daily use of sunscreen protection with a minimum of SPF 30 is highly recommended. Follow any post-treatment instructions given to you on the day of treatment.
