IT’S ALL ABOUT OBAGI BLUE PEEL RADIANCE!
IT’S ALL ABOUT OBAGI BLUE PEEL RADIANCE!
Looking for the perfect skin care regimen to complement your Botox and your fillers? Don’t know what skin care products or skin care routine to go for? Have you ever thought of getting a chemical peel done? So many questions, and so many possibilities on the market!
WHICH PEEL TO GO FOR?
I always advise my patients to go for the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance (BPR)! One of the best peels on the market, I personally love using it on myself and on my patients.
Made from salicylic acid skin peel, it is able to improve specific patient concerns such as;
• Break outs
• Fine lines
• Sun damage
• Uneven skin colour
• Acne scarring
And the benefit you get out of this peel is also about having a softer and lighter skin, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. But is this the right peel for you?
HOW DOES OBAGI BPR WORK?
Obagi BPR superficial peel is able to exfoliate damaged skin layers and rejuvenates the skin by stimulating collagen production. It is suitable for most skin types but darker skin tones may need extra dosages, depending on what I will assess during consultation.
During the procedure, I will cleanse your skin with the Obagi BPR pre Solution and then apply the peel for 5 to 10 minutes. During this time, some patients may feel a burning or tingling sensation, but that’s usually very mild. I then remove the peel and apply the Obagi BPR moisturiser, making this a very simple and quick process! The appointment will last for about 30 minutes, leaving the patients to resume their activities straight after!
Even as a superficial skin peel, Obagi BPR causes flaking on the top skin layers after the 3rd day of application. Some patients flake more than others, depending on their skin types and their current skin care regimen. However, flaking should stop and healing should be effective by the 10th day of application.
ARE THERE ANY COMPLICATIONS TO PEELS?
I always emphasize to my patients that there should be a strict adherence to the protocol after the treatment has finished. This means that the patient has to refrain from picking their skin, which is how to avoid ‘peel lines’. It is important to be patient and not pick on your skin since peel lines take months to get rid of, potentially scarring the patient in some cases.
Patients rarely experience complications, especially if they follow post-treatment protocol. However, there have been cases of temporary hyperpigmentation problems but these can be correct through further treatment and skin care products. This is why Obagi BPR should be administered by physicians and is not suitable to be applied by the patient on their own.
I recommend 1 peel every 2 weeks for a total of 5 to 6 sessions, until the patient has achieved the desired result and the specific concern has been eliminated.
WHICH SKIN CARE PRODUCTS TO COMPLEMENT MY PEEL?
I always advice my patients on which routine skin care regimen to have, that complements anti-ageing treatments in harmony. Along with the Obagi BPR, I am a big fan of the Obagi Nu-Derm ®System and the Obagi-C ® Systems product range!
I love the Nu-Derm ® System because it is able to address what we call photo damage skin. Photo damage are ageing signs caused by harmful UV rays and the Nu-Derm ® System can correct photo damage and restore health to your skin cells, making your skin look younger and healthier.
The Obagi-C ® Systems product range, on the other hand, contains hydroquinone and L-ascorbic acid that is able to correct the appearance of hyperpigmentation of the skin, as well as speed up skin shine and clarity. In turn, its added Vitamin C content is able to minimise future skin cell damage by overriding free radicals.
