The Quick and Easy Way to More Radiant Skin
A single application of Blue Peel RADIANCE will deliver radiant results in a matter of minutes.
Blue Peel RADIANCE is not intended for at-home use. Our practitioners will need to supervise and apply Blue Peel RADIANCE for you at our clinic.
The Importance of Postpeel Care
After a treatment with Blue Peel RADIANCE, you will need to care for your skin to maximize and maintain results. The single most important thing to remember after any chemical peel is to wear nonchemical sun protection (SPF 30 or higher) at all times. Obagi recommends Rosaclear® Skin Balancing Sun Protection SPF 30 or Obagi Nu-Derm® Physical UV Block SPF 32. Be sure to ask our practitioner about these products.
Obagi has developed an After-care Card especially for you. Our practitioners will provide this card to you after a peel.
Blue Peel RADIANCE may be ideal for you to use with other Obagi products.
The Obagi Blue Peel®
Obagi Blue Skin Peel is a leading deep rejuvenation treatment which helps eliminate blemishes, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and sun damage whilst increasing overall texture and tightness. Obagi offers the Blue Peel system using (TCA) Trichloroacetic Acid as the active ingredient mixed with the patented Blue Base from Obagi. The Obagi Blue Peel is used in conjunction with the Obaji Nu-Derm system, which can transform the skin to look and act younger and healthier.
A low concentration of Trichlororoacetic Acid is mixed with a special blue base to ensure an even, uniform distribution prior to application. Obagi Blue Skin Peel allows the Doctor to regulate the depth of the peel to remove surface layers of aged and damaged skin. These dead cells are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin’s own clarity and tightness to resurface.
The application of Obagi Blue peel is always administered by a Doctor, who has specialised training and experience with this highly effective peel.
It is advised for patients to use Obagi Nu-Derm System products as part of their at home skincare regime in preparation of the peel treatment and after as maintenance. Further information about this range is available in our clinics.
- Ideal treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, laxity of skin, loss of firmness, severe pigmentation, adult acne and acne scarring to achieve visible, significant results.
- Used in conjunction with the Obagi Nu-Derm System will enable patient’s skin to be prepared to its best condition and results maintained after treatment.
- When your skin has completely finished peeling, you will immediately notice the dramatic results of your newly improved complexion.
- The Obagi Blue Skin Peel can be applied to the face, neck, chest, hands, back, arms and legs and is FDA approved (US Food and Drug Administration).
For a consultation about the Obagi Nu-derm or Obagi Blue Peels we recommend you book a specialized Obagi consultation with our Obagi specialist trained practitioners.
What areas can be treated?
Face, neck and chest
Will the Obagi Blue Peel hurt?
The procedure takes approx. 1.5 hours and does not usually require sedation. The TCA is normally applied to the face and neck and a mild burning sensation will occur that can be assisted by using a cooling device to cool the skin. You may then experience a blush tint to your skin that usually washes off within 1 to 2 days.
Depending on the strength and depth of the peel, you will experience light swelling following the treatment. Within 2-3 days your skin will begin to peel, the peeling continues over the next several days. By days 7-10 your skin should be mostly healed and your skins appearance should continue to improve for the next 5-6 weeks becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful looking skin.
Post Peel Instructions
The use of the Obagi Nu-Derm system is recommended before and after you Obagi Blue Peel; this is given to you by your doctor or nurse
If I use Obagi Nu-Derm® or Obagi-C® Rx, can I still have the peel?
Blue Peel RADIANCE is an easy-to-use and gentle booster to any Obagi skin care system. Just make sure you cease use of exfoliating or potentially irritating products three days prior to the peel. These products include any hydroquinone-containing products, exfoliating agents (such as Exfoderm® and ExfodermForte), and tretinoin. In addition, you should avoid excessive sun exposure, electrolysis, depilatory creams, waxing, and laser hair removal 5 to 7 days prior to the peel.
Can I use Blue Peel / RADIANCE Peel to help correct sun damage on my neck and décolletage?
If you respond well to use of the peel on your face, the peel can be used on your neck and décolletage. Use of an additional vial of peeling product will be required to treat both areas. Skin on the neck and décolletage may be more sensitive, and redness may last longer on these areas than on the face.
What if I am using the ELASTIderm® Décolletage System?
Blue Peel RADIANCE is an easy-to-use and gentle booster to any Obagi skin care system, including the ELASTIderm Décolletage System. Simply ensure that you cease use of “active” products 3 days prior to the peel. These include any hydroquinone-containing products and tretinoin. It is possible to have a peel of the face, neck, and décolletage in a single appointment. However, it is recommended that you undergo the application on your face first, before moving to the neck and décolletage. As always, make sure you are using sun protection on the neck and décolletage at all times, but particularly before and after receiving a peel. Our practitioners can advise you whether it’s appropriate for you to have a peel on skin areas other than your face.
What if I am using the CLENZIderm M.D.™ Systems?
Blue Peel and Radiance can be used on your skin if you are currently using the CLENZIderm M.D. Systems. Simply ensure that you cease use of “active” products 3 days prior to the peel. These include benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid cleansers and toners. Use of all products can resume 24 to 48 hours after application of the peel solution.
