You will need to use these products in advance of your treatment, so we ask that you contact us for a consultation, at least 2 weeks before you would like the peel to commence.

What do I use after my Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatment?

You will need to use a medical moisturiser to assist with the shedding of dead skin, following your Obagi peel. We also strongly advise that you wear a high factor medical SPF to protect your skin. We advise all our patients to use SPF long-term, but this is especially important following your peel, to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation and skin damage from UV rays.
