The Obagi Blue Radiance Peel

The Obagi Blue Radiance peel is a gentle chemical peel. Furthermore, it successfully exfoliates the damaged superficial layers of skin. As a result, your skin will therefore feel fresh, revived and radiant.

WHAT ARE THE INDICATIONS

The Blue Radiance Peel is appropriate for all skin types. This treatment is especially good for, sun damage, pigmentation and skin resurfacing. It provides an overall improvement in texture and tone. A deep exfoliation will result in a more radiant complexion.

THE TREATMENT

Our Epilium & Skin therapist will first fully cleanse the skin before applying the Obagi Blue Radiance Peel. During the peel stage, you will feel a mild to moderate tingling on the skin which is normal and will quickly subside. This is where the active ingredients are working on the outer layers of the epidermis. The peel is left on the skin for up to 12 minutes.
