Obagi Blue Peel Radiance
Chemical peels are designed to erase or reduce damage such as pigmentation or fine wrinkles that are often caused by too much sun. The peels performed at Cygnini vary in depth from mild to deep. The aim is always to achieve clearer, more even-toned, healthier skin. Generally speaking we recommend 3-4 sessions, each one 2-3 weeks apart, once every year to maintain and optimise results.

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance
>What is Blue Peel RADIANCE?
Blue Peel RADIANCE is an addition to the Obagi medical range. It contains a unique blend of salicylic (20%), Glycolic and Lactic acid to provide a gentle but effective peel, resulting in tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin immediately after just one use. Salicylic acid based peels are used to improve a range of skin conditions, including acne, photo damage and melasma. Blue Peel RADIANCE effectively exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed and radiant.
What results can I 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. Provides instant radiance, tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin after just 1 treatment although a series of 4 to 6 peels provides best overall results. It is particularly effective, in the treatment of photo damage, and results in an overall improvement in the texture and tone. It may also be beneficial in the treatment of darker skin pigmentary changes.
What does the procedure involve?
A test application of the peel solution is applied on a small area of the skin before proceeding to the full area large area. All make up will be removed, your skin will be cleansed and delicate areas of the face will be protected with petroleum jelly. The peel itself only takes a few minutes to perform.
How do I care for my skin post peel?
Mild peeling and redness is normal. Please consult with your physician prior to returning to your normal
