What are Skin Peels or Chemical Peels?

Skin peels can be used to great effect to rejuvenate your skin, particularly on the face and neck. They can transform problems such as dull, lifeless skin; hyperpigmentation; fine lines; scarring and some types of acne.

Also known as chemical peels, skin peels work by exfoliating the skin in order to remove any dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of the healthy young cells underneath. Skin peels can promote collagen regeneration, encouraging it to come to the surface of the skin in order to greatly improve its appearance.

Patients often choose to have a skin peel in addition to treatments using Botox and dermal fillers because they feel that it is not enough to just remove the wrinkles and improve the shape and contour of the face, but that they also wish to improve the condition of the skin itself.

Why choose Aesthetic Virtue London for Obagi Skin Care treatments

Aesthetic Virtue is a London-based skin care clinic offering Obagi skin care products and peels to improve the appearance of the skin. This facial aesthetics and skin care clinic has state-of-the-art facilities and enables patients to enjoy a comfortable and welcoming environment throughout their treatment.

Our doctors are all fully accredited, advanced practitioners with years of experience in using chemical peels, including the Obagi skin care system, to provide stunning results.

At Aesthetic Virtue in London, our treatments are very much tailored to the individual. We will always strive to give you a naturally fabulous end result that exceeds your expectations and makes you feel confident about your appearance.

The benefits of Obagi Skin Care treatments

The Obagi Skin Peels give amazing results because of a transformation at a deeper cellular level of the skin. Obagi can peel, rejuvenate and de-pigment any type of skin safely, which means that it is even effective for darker skin types.

By using the Obagi Nu-Derm skin products at home for at least six weeks, followed by the Obagi Blue Peel, you can expect to see the following results: a more even skin tone; diminished fine facial lines and wrinkles; the reduction of age spots and hyperpigmentation; improvement in elasticity; normal oil production and skin that is more able to hold moisture; blemish correction; improvement in active acne and the correction of acne scars. Your skin should also have a better defence against external factors.

Chemical skin peels, such as the Obagi Blue Skin Peel, work at a much deeper level than cosmeceutical products brought over the counter at your local pharmacy. Over-the-counter products usually only work on the top layer of dead skin, masking the damaged skin without addressing its causes. Professional skin care products, such as those used by the Aesthetic Virtue clinic london, transform the health of your skin at a much deeper level.

Types of Obagi Skin Care treatments

The Obagi Blue Peel can significantly enhance the health and appearance of your skin, making you look rejuvenated and giving your complexion a healthy glow. The peel is applied by one of our qualified doctors based on the level of skin damage.

You will need to use the Obagi Nu-Derm skin products you are given prior to your treatment as these are an essential part of the Obagi skin care system. When used together, the products complement each other to balance the pH level of your skin, so that the active ingredients in the chemical peel can do their job and penetrate the area of skin needing treatment.

Chemical skin peels, such as the Obagi ® Blue Skin Peel and Obagi ® Blue Peel RADIANCE™ work at a much deeper level than cosmeceutical products brought over the counter at your local pharmacy. Over-the-counter products usually only work on the top layer of dead skin, masking the damaged skin without addressing its causes. Professional skin care products, such as those used by the Aesthetic Virtue clinic in London, transform the health of your skin at a much deeper level.

Obagi Skin Peel treatments FAQs

What is a skin peel?
Skin peels use chemical exfoliants such as glycolic, salicylic and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to remove damaged skin and encourage the growth of healthy cells.

The Obagi Skin Peels are viewed as the elite in chemical skin peels because they use active prescription strength ingredients, hydroquinone and tretinoin, along with a unique patented deep penetrating system, which transforms the skin at a deeper cellular level.

The active ingredient of the Obagi Blue Skin Peel is trichloroacetic acid, which is mixed with the patented blue base from Obagi.

Obagi ® Blue Peel RADIANCE™ is a superficial chemical peel and is a minimally invasive procedure in which an acid-based solution is applied to the face or décolletage to remove dead skin cells. After several minutes, the solution is removed, revealing smoother, more refined-looking skin. A chemical peel can improve skin problems ranging from sun spots to acne scars, as well as improve skin texture and tone.

How safe is it?
Skin peels are considered very safe procedures. In some cases, your skin may appear darker, feel tight or swollen for a short period of time and you should carefully follow any aftercare directions you are given by your doctor. You will be advised to avoid sun exposure for some time after your treatment.

In rare cases, there are complications with a chemical peel; these include infection, changes to skin colour and pigmentation, and scarring.

How does it work?
A chemical solution is applied to the skin to speed up the removal of old, damaged skin cells and to promote the growth of new, healthy cells underneath. The solution can be applied to a targeted area or all over the face, neck, arms or hands.

What does the treatment involve?
During your initial consultation, we will carry out a full analysis of the area you want treated, discussing your hopes for the outcome and your individual treatment plan in detail. You will need to use specified homecare products for at least six weeks before you can have the Obagi Blue Skin Peel. These products prepare your skin for the procedure to ensure the best results.

If you have a more severe problem with your skin, you may be asked to use these products for twelve to eighteen weeks prior to your treatment. Your doctor will explain your treatment plan in detail but please feel free to ask questions at your consultation.

As outlined above, a chemical solution will be applied to your skin in the form of a clay mask, liquid or lotion. Theprocedure will usually take half an hour.

Within two to three days, the outer layers of your skin will start to peel. This usually continues for five to ten days, after which time you should see a visible improvement in your complexion. This improvement will continue over the next few weeks as the healthy skin cells grow and new collagen is produced.

How painful is the procedure?
You may experience a slight stinging or burning sensation during the application of the chemical solution but this usually passes within a few minutes. The sensation is tolerable and doesn’t require sedation. Your skin may have a bluish tint on the treated area but this will generally wash off within 24 hours. You may also find that your skin feels tight up to 24 hours after the procedure – the amount of tightness, swelling or redness will usually depend on the depth and strength of the peel.

Chemical skin peels effectively exfoliate the uppermost damaged skin layers, leaving your skin fresh, renewed, and radiant. While the peels are formulated to be gentle, you may experience mild peeling and redness on your journey to revealing fresh, glowing skin. In fact, you should see noticeable results after just 1 treatment.

How many treatments will you need?
Chemical peels offer temporary results and we usually offer an initial series of six treatments carried out at two to three week intervals. You will then be invited to follow a maintenance programme with a treatment every six to eight weeks – this will keep your pores unclogged, control the breakout of acne or spots, and continue to improve the texture and appearance of your skin.

Are the results permanent?
As the skin is the largest organ in the human body, it is in a constant process of renewal (following a 35-day cycle). As skin cells mature, they rise to the surface and remain there as dead cells. Therefore, if you stop using the Obagi products, the healthy renewal process will eventually stop and your skin will revert to its pre-treatment condition – this is usually evident within a few weeks of ceasing the treatment.

Post treatment care
You can return to work or your normal activities straight away. You should completely avoid sun exposure for at least 48 hours after your skin peel and should use a high SPF afterwards to maintain the health of your skin and ensure the optimum results.

Treat the skin gently—DO NOT exfoliate—though you may experience mildly dry, red, or flaking skin for several days or more after your peel. Do not pick at peeling skin. The dead skin will naturally slough off. Avoid facial products containing fragrance for a few days after the peel. You may return to your normal skin care regime (usually 5-7 days after peel application).

Who can’t or shouldn’t have a skin peel?
Because of some of the ingredients in a chemical skin peel, they should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Mr Patel, South London

All my questions were addressed, treatment options, outcomes, potential side effects and after-care instructions were very clear. And the procedure was far less painful than I had imagined!

Miss Calu, London

A gentle hand… you might have very possibly cured my needle-phobia finally! And thank goodness, as everybody thinks I’m looking younger and fresher now!

Mrs Keystowe, Kensington

A clinic that insists on natural results! Fabulous! Now I’m loving the compliments.

Mr McEverly, Essex

Dr Raina has been my doctor for the last 18 months, and she will be for many months longer.

Recently my 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful full lips) told me she wanted to get her lips enlarged and that she had already spoken to another doctor about it, who was willing to do it for her. I took her along with me to discuss it with Dr Raina who explained to her that her natural lips are very nice and in proportion with the rest of her face. She mentioned that more volume will ruin the proportions and she would look ‘done’. We are both very grateful for the honesty there.

Mrs Lumley, London

A very professional, honest and straightforward doctor with surgical skills to match! My right earlobe split 6 years ago, and I was too anxious to have it repaired.

Now, I have no idea why I didn’t get it done sooner!

Miss Iliff, London

After discussing the pros and cons of removing the mole on my face, I finally underwent the procedure. Three months on, I am very pleased with the result. I appreciate the no frills honesty and straightforwardness.

Highly professional… I will certainly be recommending you!
