What is Obagi Blue Peel Radiance chemical peel?
The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance chemical peel is a non-invasive, chemical facial peel performed at our clinic. It contains a unique blend of acids to provide a gentle, yet effective, salicylic acid-based facial peel. The aims to result in tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin with immediate results even after just one treatment.
Treatments are performed at the clinic usually in a series of 6 treatments scheduled 2-4 weeks apart, approx. 2 times per year. If the desired results aren’t achieved with a course of Blue Peel Radiance we may recommend a stronger peel such as the Obagi Blue Peel or the Obagi Nu-Derm kit. Treatments are carried out within our clinic by one of our qualified aestheticians.
While this peel is formulated to be gentle, you may experience mild peeling and redness.
The Radiance Peel is 2.7ph and 20% Salicylic acid with a blend of lactic and glycolic.

How can I prepare my skin prior to the peel?
For at least a week before your peel, please avoid the following:
- Laser Hair Removal
- Waxing or depilatory creams
Certain products may increase your skin sensitivity and/or cause a stronger reaction to the peel. Avoid the following products for at least 3 days before your peel:
- Topical retinoids and tretinoin (including Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazoric, Refissa)
- Other topical acids or exfoliants that may be drying or irritating to the skin (such as alpha hydroxyl acids [AHAs], beta hydroxyl acids [NHAs], exfoliating masks, retinol, benzoyl peroxide)
Mild peeling and redness is normal. Please consult with us prior to returning to your normal skin care regime (usually 5-7days after your peel). Follow these important steps to help keep your skin protected and healthy while your peel takes effect:
Use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 at all times for at least a week
- It is recommended that you continue to use sunscreen to help protect your skin and maintain the benefits of the peel even after the initial week.
Avoid direct sun exposure
- Too much sun exposure may cause improper healing and in some cases may reverse the benefits of the peel.
Do not exfoliate
- Treat your skin gently. You may experience mild dry, red, or flaking skin for several days or more after your peel. Do not pick or exfoliate peeling skin. Do not wax or use any form of hair removal during the peeling stage. The dead skin will naturally slough off.
Avoid alpha- and beta- hydroxy acid products, retinoids, retinols, and facial products containing fragrance
