Obagi Blue Peel Radiance Pre-Treatment, Treatment and Post-Treatment
If you are considering this kind of treatment, it is essential you understand your pre-treatment advice to get maximum results. Our physicians may require or recommend you to use the pre-treatment kit, consisting of a few home products that you can use for a short period of time before proceeding with the actual treatment. If you have a lighter type of skin, you may need to use the kit for up to four weeks while those with darker skin types are advised to use the kit up for up to six weeks.
When you visit our skin specialist for your first consultation, our experts will take a look at your skin, analyze it and note down your medical history. Reviewing your general health is part of the process and you may need to answer questions from them to ensure that your skin is suitable for the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatment. Once determined that you are a perfect candidate for the treatment, there will be a home care program which will be carefully formulated, according to your skin type and needs.
The treatment requires four to six different sessions. Every appointment is scheduled around two to four weeks apart from each other. During the treatment, your face will be cleansed, removing all make-up and other skin products. The therapist will then apply a protective gel barrier to the delicate areas of your face such as the corners of your eyes and mouth. Sticky back patches are placed on the eyelids for protection. Once all the protective items are in place, the therapist will start sponging on the first layer of salicylic acid on your face.
You may feel an intense tingling and itchy sensation after the application of the acid solution. It disappears after a minute or less and the pain tends to be more manageable and subsides quickly. Then, the second layer of the solution will be applied and left on the skin for up to ten minutes.
Once done, any residue of the solution will be removed from the skin. The therapist will usually apply sunblock to your skin with high factor before leaving the clinic.

You will instantly see the result from the first session. This makes it one of the most favorite lunchtime facials of many people. It can be customized and can be performed quickly while addressing some skin issues. Moreover, it leaves the skin looking younger and more radiant after the first appointment.
