Find out more about Obagi Blue Peel Radiance®:
Southern Dermatology is pleased to offer patients a new way to reveal beautiful, younger-looking skin with a light chemical peel. We have added Obagi Blue Peel Radiance® to our additional Obagi® products to help you optimize your results.
Obagi Blue Peel Radiance® is a quick and easy salicylic acid-based chemical peel designed to be used on all skin types by a doctor or trained skincare professional. This peel will exfoliate and help improve the overall complexion for instant, radiant results. As an added benefit for those who have no time for peeling, Obagi Blue Peel Radiance® also contains a blend of lactic and glycolic acids with calming Willow Bark and Licorice Root to help soothe skin. These additives also make this peel ideal for those with sensitive skin. The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance® will improve overall complexion, help with hyper-pigmentation issues, heal photo-damaged skin and provide superficial exfoliation with no downtime.
The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance® works by forcing dead skin cells up to the surface where they’re then shed. At the same time, the acids are stimulating collagen production beneath the skin and working to clear out your pores and refresh your skin cells.
Your skincare provider will start by cleaning your skin with the special Blue Peel Prep Solution before applying the peel to your face and neck. A mild burning sensation may occur that generally only lasts for a few minutes with the entire procedure only lasting around 20 minutes. This peel requires no sedation. Some patients experience a mild blue tint to their skin but it will wash off within 12 to 24 hours. Depending on the strength and depth of the peel, some patients may experience light swelling and mild peeling. Around seven days post-procedure, the skin typically stops peeling and reveals an improved look.
Before and after treatment, it’s important for patients to keep up with a skincare regime to maximize results. Southern Dermatology offers other Obagi® products to help. Lay the foundation for a more visible and even outcome by using Obagi® systems four to six weeks prior to the peel and after. You can find the Obagi Nu-Derm® System, Obagi-C® Rx System and the ELASTIderm® Décolletage System at Southern Dermatology.

FAQs About Obagi Blue Peel Radiance®:
- HOW DOES IT WORK?
A skin care professional will prep your skin with a special cleansing solution before applying the peel. After the area has been cleaned, the peel will then be applied to your face and décolletage (neck and chest) or hands. The procedure takes around 20 minutes. As the peel sits on your skin, it will go deep to clear out your pores of dead skin cells and promote collagen production.
- WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY PEEL?
Depending on the strength and depth of the peel, some patients may experience a light swelling to the areas the peel was applied. Within two or three days, the skin will begin to peel and continue over the next several days. By day seven to 10, the skin should be healed.
Some patients experience a blue tint to their skin post-procedure which washes off 12 to 24 hours after the procedure.
- WHAT CAN I DO FOR BETTER RESULTS?
After an Obagi Blue Peel Radiance® treatment, it’s important to maintain a skin care regime. Always wear a chemical-free sunscreen SPF 35 or higher. Southern Dermatology has several Obagi® products for sale to help optimize results.
- WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BLUE PEEL RADIANCE® AND OTHER PEELS?
The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance® allows your skin care provider to control the depth of the peel on the skin being treated whereas other AHA peels do not. By selecting the number of layers to apply to the skin, we can tailor the chemical peel process to individual concerns.
- WILL BLUE PEEL RADIANCE® WORK FOR MY SKIN TYPE?
All skin types can be treated with the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance®. This peel can safely treat Africa-American, Hispanic, Asian and other darker skin types with the Obagi® systems.
- HOW MANY PEELS WILL I NEED?
Optimal results are achieved through four to six peels though results can be seen with a single treatment. The peel works not only as an active treatment but as a preventative treatment. Peels can be repeated every two weeks if necessary.
- HOW BADLY WILL I PEEL?
The peeling associated with Blue Peel Radiance® is very light and easily hidden with the use of moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible.
CONTRADICTIONS: People with prior history of sensitivity or allergic reaction to this product or any of its ingredients should not use it. The safety of topical hydroquinone use during pregnancy or in children (12 years and under) has not been established.
WARNINGS: Avoid contact with eyes, nose, mouth, or lips. In case of accidental contact, patient should rinse eyes, nose, mouth, or lips with water and contact physician. Sunscreen use is an essential aspect of hydroquinone therapy because even minimal sunlight exposure sustains melanocytic activity. Contains sodium metabisulfite, a sulfite that may cause allergic-type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible people. The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown and probably low. Sulfite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic than in non-asthmatic people.*
