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.


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.

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.

What is the Cosmelan Peel?

The Cosmelan Peel, developed by Mesoestetic, is a deep peeling system designed to target pigmentation and melasma. It is a medical grade peel: the skin will noticeably peel off the face. You are put on review so that you are constantly tracked and supported throughout the process. The whole process takes 6 – 12 months, so it is definitely for the committed!

Understanding the Cosmelan Peel

Developed by Mesoestetic, a renowned pharmaceutical company specializing in dermatology, the Cosmelan Peel is a professional depigmentation treatment designed to target and reduce skin discoloration. Unlike traditional peels, which primarily focus on exfoliation, it goes beyond surface-level concerns to address pigmentation issues at their root.

How Does the Treatment Work?

The Cosmelan Peel harnesses the power of potent ingredients, including azelaic acid, kojic acid, phytic acid, and arbutin, to inhibit the production of melanin in the skin. By suppressing melanin synthesis, the peel effectively fades existing dark spots while preventing the formation of new ones. This dual-action approach ensures comprehensive depigmentation results, leaving the skin visibly brighter and more even-toned. The peel is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, which makes it really unique.

The Treatment Process:

The peel is typically administered in two stages: the in-clinic application of the peel followed by a customized at-home skincare regimen. During the initial session, a skin expert will carefully apply the mud-like solution to the skin, ensuring even coverage. The patient will be informed to leave the mud-like solution on for a number of hours. Patients may experience a mild tingling sensation whist the solution is on the skin. The at home regime requires you to apply a small amount of peel on daily for a number of days. You are put on review during this process so that we have constant feedback on your skin and the developments.


The Cosmelan Peel is definitely for those who can commit to the long time frame of the process. However, the results of this treatment are truly remarkable, especially for those dealing with melasma and pigmentation which is renowned for being very difficult to treat.
