Obagi Radiance Peel

What is the Obagi Radiance Peel?

The Obagi Radiance Peel is one of our favourite treatments! It is a salicylic acid-based peel designed to exfoliate the skin and improve its texture and tone. It is quite a gentle peeling system and is suitable for a variety of skin types.

It is a great option for addressing hormonal breakouts and rejuvenating the skin.

What is salicylic acid?

Salicylic acid is a type of beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) which supports the skins natural exfoliation process. This ingredient loosens the “glue” that hold the skin cells together, which supports the exfoliation of the skin. The result of this is that pores are unclogged and new fresh skin cells are generated.

Benefits of the Obagi Radiance Peel

  • Exfoliation: Helps remove dead skin cells, revealing fresher, more radiant skin underneath.
  • Acne Treatment: Clears out clogged pores, reducing the occurrence of acne breakouts.
  • Improves Skin Tone: Reduces the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone.
  • Anti-Aging: Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Aftercare

Post-peel care is important for achieving the best results and minimizing any side effects.

  • The skin be red straight after the treatment which can last up to 24 hours.
  • Swelling of the treated area is very common, if this does happen, sleep with a few pillows behind your head and avoid sleeping on the face. This will normally resolve within a few days.
  • The skin can be sensitive to touch. Ensure your hands are clean when applying facial products to your skin.
  • Some dryness can occur, if this happens, apply plenty of moisturizer to the skin and it will heal.
  • Avoid intense heat like saunas, steam or excessive exercise.
  • Apply SPF50 and avoid sun exposure.
  • Do not apply any products with active ingredients for 48 hours.
  • Avoid cosmetics for 48 hours.

Frequency

For optimal results, a series of peels is often recommended. Typically, 4 to 6 peels spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart are suggested, but this can vary based on individual skin concerns and response to the treatment.

The Obagi Radiance Peel is an effective treatment for individuals looking to improve their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance with minimal downtime. Regular treatments can lead to noticeable improvements in skin clarity, smoothness, and radiance.
