Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE

What is a Blue Peel RADIANCE?

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 peel, resulting in tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin immediately after just one use. Salicylic acid–based peels are used to improve patient outcomes for a range of skin conditions, including acne scarring, photo damage and melasma. Blue Peel RADIANCE effectively exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed and radiant.

It is particularly effective, in the treatment of photo damage, and results in an overall improvement in texture and tone. It may also be beneficial in the treatment of darker skin with pigment changes.

What results can I expect?

Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE can improve your skin’s look, texture and feel in a matter of minutes.

  • Superficial exfoliation, with little to no downtime
  • Instant radiance—tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just 1 use, although a series of 4 to 6 peels provides best overall results.

What does the procedure involve?

A test application of the peel solution is applied on a small area of skin before proceeding to a large area.

Once all traces of make up are removed, the hair is secured away from the face with a headband. Once the patient is comfortable in a reclining position, the lips and corners of the eyes are then covered with a small amount of petroleum jelly or a moisturizer to protect these sensitive areas. To ensure protection of the eyelid area, a piece of gauze can be placed over each eye.

Step 1
The Blue Peel RADIANCE Prep Solution is then applied to clean, dry skin, and the skin is left to dry completely.

Step 2
The first layer of Blue Peel RADIANCE is applied in a systematic pattern of application in order to achieve even results. The patient may experience mild tingling for the duration of the application. This is normal. For a very light peel, only 1 layer of product is applied. For incremental desquamation of the stratum corneum, up to 2 layers are applied. If, after waiting 30-60 seconds, the skin has tolerated the first layer, a second layer is applied in the same pattern.

If significant reactions (strong burning or stinging, significant discomfort, erythema) arise and do not subside after 3-5 minutes, a second layer of the peel is not applied. The peel remains on the skin for up to 10-12 minutes after application of the first layer. The peel is then removed by applying Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser with a sponge or gauze, and then, rinsing with water.

Step 3
A non-chemical sunscreen is then applied to the patient’s skin.  Obagi recommends Rosaclear® Skin Balancing Sun Protection SPF 30.
