The Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE is a prescription-strength chemical peel suitable for various skin types. Its key active ingredient is salicylic acid, complemented by lactic and glycolic acids. This peel aids in exfoliation, enhancing overall complexion and potentially yielding smoother, brighter skin after just one session.


Due to its superficial nature, there's minimal downtime, unlike deeper peels, allowing you to resume daily activities without significant recovery time. Skin radiance noticeably improves after the initial treatment, and for optimal results, additional peels may be scheduled at intervals determined by Natalie during your skin consultation. The peel caters to most skin types, including acne-prone, oily, dry, and combination skin with stunning results revealing fresher, cleaner complexion.

It is important to remember that each client and treatment is completely unique.  Your exact requirements and results will be discussed in detail with

Natalie.  The whole process from start to finish usually takes approximately 30-35 minutes and downtime is minimal - typically a day or two.  

The Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® treatment follows a comprehensive step-by-step process to rejuvenate and enhance the skin:


1. Consultation:

During your consultation with Natalie, your skin concerns, goals, and medical history will be discussed to determine if the treatment is suitable for you.


2. Preparation:

The treatment area is cleansed to remove any makeup, oils, or debris. Protective measures, such as the application of a barrier cream, may be taken to shield sensitive areas.


3. Application:

The specially formulated Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® solution is applied evenly to the skin. The solution contains a blend of salicylic acid, lactic acid, and other skin-renewing ingredients.


4. Peeling Process:

Over the next few days, the peel stimulates exfoliation and peeling of the outermost layer of the skin. This process helps reveal fresher, smoother skin underneath.


5. Post-Treatment Care:

Following the peel, specific post-treatment instructions are provided, including the use of gentle skincare products, sun protection, and avoiding excessive sun exposure.


6. Recovery:

The recovery period varies for each individual but generally involves mild redness and peeling as the skin undergoes renewal.


7. Results:

As the skin heals, clients typically experience improved texture, reduced blemishes, and a revitalised complexion. Multiple sessions may be recommended for optimal results.

It's essential to undergo Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® under the supervision of a qualified skincare professional to ensure safety and effectiveness tailored to individual skin needs.

It's important to have the treatment performed by a trained and experienced professional to ensure safety and efficacy. If you have any concerns or questions about the procedure, discussing them with your practitioner during the consultation is advisable.

Following post-care instructions is crucial for achieving optimum results.


It is very important you follow the post treatment care advice carefully to help make the results as successful as possible and to reduce the risk of complications.

Post-treatment advice includes:

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and sunbeds as this may not allow the skin to heal properly and may cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

  • A sun protection product with an SPF of at least 30 should be worn at all times. -Facial products containing fragrance should be avoided for 3-5 days as they may irritate the skin

  • Do not use exfoliating agents such as AHAs, BHAs, retinoids, retinols, and exfoliating scrubs for 5-7 days

  • Return to normal skin care regime after 7 days

  • No laser hair removal, facial waxing or dermal filler procedures to be carried out for 2 weeks

  • Following the peel, skin may be slightly dry and red for 1-2 days. Mild 'breadcrumb peeling' may occur 3 days post peel and can last up to 5 days. Do not speed the peeling process up with any sort of physical exfoliation. A mild moisturiser may be used to minimise dryness and redness.

Recovery time:

1-2 days: Skin may feel tight, dry and you may experience some redness

3-5 days: Minimal areas of dry flaky skin

Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® FAQs

Q: What is Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE®?

A: This chemical face peel is a salicylic acid face peel, it also contains other active ingredients such as lactic acid and glycolic acid which work to exfoliate and brighten the complexion. A skin peel is a cosmetic treatment that removes a layer of damaged skin from the face to reveal the newer, healthier layer beneath.

Q: What are the active ingredients in Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE®?

A: Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® contains 20% Salicylic Acid, 2% Glycolic Acid and 2% Lactic Acid.

Q: What areas does Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® treat?

A: Face, neck , shoulders, upper back.


Whilst the face is the most common area, it is also common to require this treatment on neck or shoulders/upper back to treat breakouts and acne scarring.

Q: Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® - Do I need to prepare my skin before having this treatment? 

A: This is a superficial, Salicylic Acid face peel, so generally no skin preparation is required. You can have it on the day of your appointment, irrespective of ethnicity and skin type. However, if your skin barrier is impaired (dry) then you will need to prepare the skin before your peel. Natalie will be able to provide you with medical skincare products to restore your skin barrier prior to your peel. If you think that this might be the case please contact us so we can arrange for you to start applying these products before you come for your treatment.


You will need to stop using any active skincare products, e.g. containing retinol, glycolic, other AHA’s or bleaching products, for 3 days prior to your peel. It is recommended that you have not had sunbed treatment or experienced sunburn or any other form of burn to the face in the 2 weeks prior to your peel.

Q: Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® - How many treatments will I need?

A: The number of treatments needed varies depending on the type of peel and the skin concern(s) being treated. Some clients have the Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® as a one-off to freshen the skin or control breakouts. However, as it is a superficial peel you would need a course of 3 to 6 treatments to see dramatic results or treat actual skin conditions. For example, as a chemical peel for acne or chemical peel for hyperpigmentation you would need this number of treatments.

Q: Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® - What do I need to do or avoid after my peel?

A: • You will need to apply both aftercare products recommended by Natalie for at least 14 days after your peel (although we recommend long term use) 

• You should avoid sweating, exercising, hot baths and showers for 72 hours after your peel; avoid scrubbing, picking or rubbing the skin for 5 days after your treatment. 

• Avoid strong sun exposure e.g. sunbathing with face in sun, and tanning beds for at least 14 days after your treatment.

Q: Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® - Do I need to use aftercare products?

A: Yes. You will need to use a medical moisturiser to assist the shedding of dead skin after your chemical face peel. You will also need to wear an approved medical SPF following your peel for at least 14 days (although we recommend it long term). Products can be provided by Natalie to take with you after treatment.

Q: Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE® - Are there any side effects?

A: Depending on your skin type and home care regimen, a skin peel may cause increased sensitivity. Side effects may include (but aren’t limited to): stinging, itching, irritation, redness, swelling, tightness, peeling and scabbing of the skin, scarring, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation.


Natalie will advise you to ensure that you minimise any discomfort or side effects.
