A salicylic acid-based peel, the Blue Peel RADIANCE utilizes a unique blend of salicylic, lactic, glycolic acids and other soothing ingredients for a potent combination that can improve your skin’s look, texture and feel in a matter of minutes. It exfoliates the uppermost damaged skin layers, evens out skin tone and provides instant rejuvenation that improves overall complexion with little-to-no downtime.
This peel allows the doctor to control the depth of the peel and also provides you with the opportunity to select the number of coats applied for a truly tailored skin treatment process based on your skin’s individual needs.
It is recommended for treatment of the following:
How is a chemical peel performed?
All chemical peels involve applying or brushing on a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin.
How long does a Blue Peel Radiance chemical peel procedure take?
Each treatment will last approximately 30-45minutes. However, it depends on the concentration and number of coats needed to achieve your treatment goals, treatment time can vary.
Is a Blue Peel Radiance procedure painful?
Most patients experience a tingling sensation during the peel process, but very few report any pain. A neutralising lotion is applied immediately after the peel application to eliminate any discomfort.
What is the recovery time following a treatment?
During the recovery period of your peel you may experience mild swelling followed by skin peeling beginning within two to three days from the procedure. This peeling will continue for approximately seven to ten days. For patients receiving a lighter exfoliative Blue Peel, healing is completed within three to six days.
Following any chemical peel, your skin may be slightly sensitive for 1-4 days therefore it is extremely important to protect your skin through the use of a non-chemical sun protection (SPF 30 or higher) at all times. Nonetheless, duration and severity of down time depends on the strength of the peel and individual factors.
When will I see results with the Blue Peel Radiance?
You will have tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin immediately after your first peel. However, when the healing process has completely finished, you will notice dramatic results to the tone, texture, and feel of your skin. Your complexion will become firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier, and more youthful looking. These results will only continue to improve over the next four to six weeks.
What are the possible side effects and unwanted risks?
Blue Peel Radiance is one of the safest available for skin rejuvenation. However, temporary redness and dryness following a treatment is common. As with all treatments and different skin reactions, the possible risks involved in chemical peels are infection, scarring and cold sore breakouts.
Can people with different skin tones/colours be treated with Blue Peel Radiance?
The Blue Peel Radiance is suitable for the majority of skin types and can be used to improve the condition of a range of skin complaints.
