Obagi skin care
Our skin is exposed to a large number of environmental stressors on a daily basis, which causes damage that can reach the deepest layers of your skin. Photodamage, caused by exposure to the harmful rays of the sun is the leading cause of the fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. These are early signs of ageing that you may already or will eventually see on your face. As we get older, the skin can become lax, pigmented and rough.

Obagi Radiance Peel
The Radiance Peel is a favourite. It is a gentle peel and is suitable for almost all skin types from age 18 years onwards, with minimal 'downtime'. Great to give the skin a real boost and glow prior to special occasions or before embarking on the Obagi systems treatments. We will always carry out consultation with you prior to a peel treatment to ensure it is suitable for you
The Radiance Peel is formulated with 20% Salicylic Acid and 2% Glycolic and Lactic Acid.
There is minimal downtime (when aftercare advice is properly followed) and you will not need to take time away from work. You can expect some mild flaking of the skin from about 2-3 days after the peel which is normal and can then return to your normal skin care regime 5-7 days after the peel.
You must avoid sun exposure and use broad spectrum sun protection with a minimum of 30SPF for at least a week following treatment.
Most people will see a glow or boost to their skin in 1 treatment. For maintaining results it is recommended to have 5 peels or more spaced about 2-4 weeks apart and then one treatment every 6-8 weeks for maintenance.
The radiance peel is not suitable with:
Active cold sores or warts in the area to be treated
Wounded, sunburned or excessively sensitive skin in the application area
Currently pregnant or breast feeding
Dermatitis or inflammatory rosacea within peel area
Roaccutane use within the past 6-12 months;
History of radiation therapy in the application area
Allergy to aspirin or any of the ppel ingredients (salicyclic acid, glycolic acid or lactic acid)
