When we are younger, our skin cells replace themselves rapidly giving the appearance of fresh and youthful skin. As we age, this process slows down and we retain older cells for longer giving an uneven and 'dirty' appearance to the skin. Furthermore, ageing leads to wrinkles and the deposition of pigment giving an uneven appearance to the skin, the pores enlarge and the skin becomes looser.
Obagi Blue Peel
The "Blue Peel" provides a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. The outer tissue layers are removed allowing the skin to renew itself, producing a fresher and more youthful complexion. The "Blue Peel" is a relatively deep peel and this can give a red appearance to the skin for one week after treatment as the skin sheds and renews itself.
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pigment irregularities
- Skin laxity
Glycolic Acid Peel
The "Glycolic Peel" is a less invasive method. A series of glycolic acid pre–conditioners are used for 3 weeks prior to the peel. A thinner layer of tissue is removed and there is no reddening expected following treatment. As there is no "down time" the peels can be done at any time. Gradually increasing strengths of solution are applied at weekly intervals for 6 week. Results gradually appear over a number of weeks.
- Reduced pore size
- A fresher more hydrated skin that "glows"
Improvements can be enhanced and maintained by the use of 'Obagi Protocols' Skin Care products. We are pleased to offer the full range of products and can give the necessary treatment monitoring.
