What to expect

Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE can improve your skins’ look, texture, and feel in a matter of minutes. Superficial exfoliation, with little to no downtime, means you can have this treatment at any time. It provides instant radiance and tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin after just one treatment, although a series of 4 to 6 peels provides the best overall results. It is particularly effective in treating photodamage and results in an overall improvement in the texture and tone. It may also be beneficial in the treatment of darker skin pigmentary changes.

The active ingredient in this peel is Salicylic Acid. Salicylic acid is an oil-soluble ingredient, which means it will get deep into your pores, clean them out and improve your overall complexion. Every spot starts with a comedone (blackhead). This peel is so effective, especially at treating acne, because it tackles the problem at its origin. By starving its fuel, this peel removes comedones, deep-cleanses pores, and provides an anti-bacterial action. Obagi has created the Obagi Radiance Peel to decongest, brighten, and smooth the skin's texture. It contains 20% Salicylic Acid, 2% Glycolic Acid and 2% Lactic Acid.
Common side effects include: transient burning, irritation and erythema. Very rare side effects include: scarring, post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) and infection.
