The time taken for the skin to recover from the Obagi process is often subjective, but some patients decide to take roundabout a week off work whilst the shredding process takes place. We would always suggest that make-up is only applied once the skin is completely healed. It is also highly advisable to avoid direct sunlight and the sun’s strong UV rays as this can lead to scarring and an incomplete recovery. Even once your skin has healed, you must continue to use a strong SPF as part of your continued maintenance and recovery programme.
Obagi Blue Radiance
The latest revolutionary treatment in the Obagi medical range is the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance. Compiled of a unique blend of acids which are designed to enable a non-irritating but effective salicylic acid-based facial chemical peel. The outcome of the innovative Obagi treatment will render the skin brighter tighter and far more youthful than ever before – even after just one treatment!
Salicylic acid–based peels are well known for their ability to help with a wide-range of skin issues, including but not limited to photo damage, acne scarring, melasma and improved texture and tone. The Blue Peel Radiance is an effective exfoliant of the upper epidermis (which is the most damaged layer of all). This treatment can also be beneficial for those with the skin type of 4-6 pigmentation and is suitable for targeting age affected areas of the face.
In order to make the most out of this treatment, we advise that you use the Obagi pre-treatment kit for at least 2-4 weeks before your procedure for lighter skin and 4-6 weeks for darker skin. This kit is made up of easy to use at home products that you will be able to effortlessly incorporate into your existing routine. It is fundamental that all patients wear a suitable SPF30 daily before, during and after their treatment.
During your Obagi consultation your practitioner will carry out a detailed skin analysis which will also involve a full run down of your medical history to ensure your aptitude for the treatment. You will also receive a bespoke home care system that will make sure you are having the right treatment for you, which can also include a patch test – to avoid the risk of any allergic reactions.
The Obagi Blue Radiance peel works effectively once applied to clean and dry skin – the is allowed to dry completely. As no one person’s skin is the same, some patients may find that in order to obtain optimum results, they may need a second application of the treatment. Once applied, it is left on for 5-10 minutes (sensitivity depending), then removed with Obagi cleanser and covered with SPF.
The treatment is not intensely painful as its main side effect can be a mild heat sensation which is easily reduced with the use of a fan. Your practitioner will be able to determine the number of treatments that you require, they are usually staggered as a series of 4-6 treatments scheduled 2-4 weeks apart, approx. 2 times per year.
