Dr Becky is a GMC-registered Doctor and NHS GP, delivering OBAGI Chemical Peel treatment in Cardiff, South Wales.
Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE®
The Blue Peel RADIANCE is an addition to the Obagi medical range. It is a quick, superficial salicylic acid-based facial peel that exfoliates and helps improve overall complexion. It provides tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just 1 use. However, a series of 4 – 6 peels provide the best results.
This peel is ideal for anyone that wants to reduce sun damage, acne scars, blemishes, pigmentation and fine lines with no downtime.
How does Blue Peel Radiance do this?
All peels use an acid-base to exfoliate the top layer of superficial dead skin thereby encouraging cell renewal for fresher, younger looking skin. Generally, the higher the concentration of acid, the lower the PH value and thus the deeper the peel. The Radiance Peel is 2.7ph and 20% Salicylic with a blend of 2% Lactic acid and 2% Glycolic acid.
Immediately after your treatment, you should notice that your skin looks younger, smoother and tighter. These results will continue to improve for the next 7 to 10 days, after which your skin should be completely healed again. You should notice an improvement in the appearance of scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and pores. You will also see that the texture and tone of your skin is improved.
After your treatment you will need to care for your skin to maximise and maintain results. The single most important thing to remember after any chemical peel is to wear a sun protection (SPF 30/50) at all times. Avoiding direct sun exposure is advised, as too much exposure may cause improper healing and in some cases may reverse the benefits of the peel.
Treat the skin gently. Do not exfoliate, even though you may experience mildly dry, red or flaking skin for a few days or more after your peel. Do not pick at peeling skin. The dead skin will naturally slough off. Also avoid alpha- and beta- hydroxyl acid products, retinol and facial products containing fragrance for 3 days after the peel.

More About Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
Licensed brands of botulinum toxin A include, Botox®, Azzalure®, Bocouture®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®. All botulinum toxins are prescription-only medicines (POM) and can only be prescribed by doctors, dentists, prescribing nurses and pharmacists with a prescribing qualification, following a face to face assessment and consultation with the qualified prescriber.
After treatment, it is expected that you will start to see an improvement within two or three days. The full result may be judged at two to three weeks. You will be invited to attend a review appointment at this point, where the success of the treatment may be assessed and adjustments to your personal treatment plan made, if necessary.
You will be provided with detailed aftercare instructions during your consultation, but these typically include keeping the target muscles active for a few hours while avoiding extremes of heat or cold, facial flushing, vigorous exercise, lying down or leaning over for four to six hours.
The treatment may not ‘completely freeze’ the expression, particularly if the extreme effort is exerted to make an expression. This treatment is not suitable for lines present without expression (static lines) only active lines.
There may be only a partial reduction in movement, but this very much depends on the amount administered, the location of product placement and the effect of the treatment on an individual.
Effects last for three to six months (or sometimes longer with repeated treatments). After eight weeks, you may notice movement starting to return.
