Obagi Skin Peels

What are Obagi Skin Peels?

Obagi Skin Peels consist of a range of skin peeling solutions designed specifically to treat a variety of skin conditions. They are used to improve the texture of the skin and brighten it, to reduce lines and wrinkles, lighten pigmentation and even out skin tone, as well as treating more serious conditions such as congestion and acne. At MediZen we use the range of FDA approved Obagi Medical Grade Advanced Skin Peels because of their renowned effectiveness and safety in achieving superior results for clients with specific skin concerns. Our skin specialists will choose the most suitable treatment for you following your consultation.

The Obagi Skin Peel range consists of:

Blue Radiance Peel

An in-office, non-surgical, medium depth, mild facial chemical peel procedure that can be used on most areas of the body including the face, back and chest. The treatment uses the key ingredient trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special Obagi blue base to monitor and slow penetration while removing old and damaged skin cells so they can be replaced by healthy new cells to improve the skin’s complexion. Obagi Blue Radiance is a mild chemical peel of 2.7pH and contains 20% Salicylic acid with a blend of lactic and glycolic. While this peel is formulated to be gentle, you may experience mild peeling and redness and if the desired results aren’t achieved with a course of Blue Peel Radiance we may recommend a stronger peel such as the Obagi Nu-Derm system.

Blue Peel Radiance can help improve the appearance of the following skin concerns:

Obagi Nu-Derm® System

Daily sun exposure to damaging UVA and UVB rays can contribute to premature skin ageing. Older, damaged cells accumulate due to slower skin cell turnover and the sun-damaged skin appears dull, sallow and can suffer from hyperpigmentation. Nu-Derm helps transform skin from the inside out and improves its appearance by reducing darks spot and revealing younger, healthier-looking skin. The Nu-Derm Complete skin care system is specially formulated for either normal to dry skin or Normal to Oily Skin and will help correct hyperpigmentation, such as dark spots and melasma, and transform the appearance of ageing skin.

Nu-Derm is particularly effective at treating:

Obagi-C RX® System

This complete skin care regimen for either normal to dry or normal to oily skin has been specifically formulated, with 4% hydroquinone, to reduce hyperpigmentation, such as dark spots and melasma. Other essential ingredients in the formulation help address the signs of skin ageing caused by photoaging to maintain younger-looking skin and restore the balance and clarity to lacklustre skin in as quickly as 6-weeks.

Obagi-C Rx is the treatment to choose if you have:

Obagi 360®

A unique treatment for younger patients that provides a complete approach to help protect and preserve youthful-looking skin. Obagi 360 has been formulated to specifically address the facial skin care needs of people in their 20s and 30s and provides early intervention for loss of radiance and resilient feel (what does this mean?); the appearance of minimal fine lines and wrinkles; dull complexion and uneven texture; and dry skin. It is the ideal foundation peel for a lifetime of radiant, healthy-looking skin. 

Obagi 360 can help you proactively address:

What are Obagi Skin Peels and How Do They Work?

A skin peel is a non-surgical resurfacing treatment designed to improve and enhance the skin. Also known as a face peel, a skin peel is a means of chemically exfoliating the skin by breaking down the intercellular glue that holds together dead skin cells and causing cell turnover which brings new skin to the surface at a faster rate.

Of course, skin peels are not, by any stretch of the imagination, a recent ‘fad’. Historians widely believe that mechanical and chemical skin peels - to smooth and rejuvenate the skin - have existed for over 3000 years in various forms. We’ve all heard of ancient Egyptians bathing in sour milk and rubbing their faces with fermented grape skins to smooth the skin and enhance their beauty. They were in fact, improving their skin by utilising organic forms of what we now know as glycolic peeling.

Modern resurfacing and restoring of the skin with chemical peeling, in a form recognisable by today’s aesthetic practitioners, can be traced back to the second half of the 19th century when it was introduced by the Austrian dermatologist Ferdinand Ritter von Hebra.

The skin is the largest organ in the body with the tough outer layer, the stratum corneum, acting as an impenetrable barrier protecting the body from injury, infection, pollution and harmful sun rays. It also prevents many expensive over the counter anti-ageing or skin rejuvenating creams from penetrating fully so they are far less effective than claimed.

Skin cells take approximately 28 days to fully regenerate or repair naturally when dead or damaged. Chemical peels speed up this process removing the outermost layers of dead skin and triggering the repair cycle which promotes collagen production to begin the process of tissue (skin cell) regeneration. During this process, the dead skin peels off allowing smoother and less wrinkled regenerated skin to come to the surface.

What Can Obagi Skin Peels Treat?

Some of the areas MediZen use Obagi Peels to treat include the face, the décolletage area and the backs of the hands. Obagi Peels can be used to rejuvenate the skin, improve skin quality, remove wrinkles, improve acne scarring and to reduce sun spots and uneven pigmentations. There are also Obagi skin peels for the treatment of acute acne and other skin issues like congestion, rough skin and Erythema.
